If you dig and transplant your roses now they will stop blooming - possibly for several months. It's best to dig and transplant in December when they are resting. You can prune prior to digging to make the roses easier to handle in the move. Even though your roses are blooming now, pruning is okay to do, but you won't get flowers again for a good 4-6 weeks. Best wishes with your roses.
