    Transplanting Rose Bushes

    I have a rose garden andone of my rose bushes is twice the size as all of my other rose bushes. Is there any way to transplant a part of this rose bush and put it in an area of my rose garden that looks bare? I live in southern Louisiana and I am not sure if this is the right time to do this. Please help!!

    Is the rose bush on it's own roots, or is it a grafted rose? If it's on it's own roots, and canes come up from under the ground, you could cut out a section and move it to it's own spot in the garden. Cut it back to about a foot tall dig it out, try to keep as much soil with the rooted canes as possible, then move it to it's new home. If it is a grafted rose, and only enters the ground in one spot, then you would have to take cuttings and root them, then move them to the new location, or move the whole bush to the new location. It might just be easier to go buy a new rose bush. Add a different variety to your collection.

    You can't transplant part of a rose bush. If you want to move the bush to another location of your garden, you are too late. Should be done in the Fall when the rose goes domant (completed it's growing season).
