Hi all I'm very sadly saying good bye to one of my rose bushes It has been giving me problems with leaf hoppers I tried my best using various products and even chopped it down Howver it grew again and had the leaf hoppers again
My question is that I want to move my Falstaff in that location
Should I clean the area first

I would just rake away any dead leaves from the other rose bush, in case they have leaf hopper eggs on them. If you can wait until the weather is cooler to plant the Falstaff, that will prevent any more lurking eggs from hatching.

It's best to move plants when they are already dormant if you can anyway.
