|The dormant season (December through February) is the best time to dig and divide your rose bush. Without seeing the plant I can't guide you through the process but as long as each division has roots and a few stems attached, it should develop into a happy shrub. Be sure to wrap the rootmass in wet newspapers while in transit so they don't dry out before you can get the divisions back in the ground.
