I have made a new rose garden and am about to transplant roses that I have been growing in containers for 2-3 years.
(Iam in New Zealand so it is the correct time to transplant)
The roots have around around each other insde the pots forming a circular mass and I was wonder if I should trim then first?

Yes, I would trim the roots first before I transplanted them. Just trim them to make them manageable and to encourage them to grow more normally not in a circular fashion. Try and spread them out before you transplant them.

I am in California and want to transplant roses. They are in the ground, not in pots. I havent been able to find any information about digging them up. They always talk about transplanting in pots. The roses are definitly not happy where they are, can I move them to a better spot without killing them?

yes, you can transplant them. But wait until they are dormant. Around November to January is a good time. Dig in some good quality soil and some well aged compost or manure and a handful of bonemeal into the spot that you want to plant them.
