I would like to move 2 rosebushes to another area in my yard. They are about 3 yrs. old and still small. Can I move them now or should I wait?

You can move your roses in the spring or in the autumn months, but try to avoid moving them in the hottest summer months when the stress might be too much. Prepare the new location before digging the plants, and be sure to plant them at the same depth as they were growing in their previous homes. If you choose a cloudy day, or transplant them late in the afternoon, they'll suffer less shock. Be sure to water well after replanting, and plan to supply enough water to thoroughly wet the root systems once each week during the spring and summer months.
