    The best time to transplant roses is when they are dormant - not actively growing - such as in the winter.

    I'm sure we all have our own opinions on this but I'd never transplant in Winter but I live in CO and ground freezes. I go by when the roses are available - bare roots available in early Spring when the plants are dormant but the ground is thawed. This gives the plant time for the roots to get established and break dormancy. If you live is a warm climate you might be able to transplant year round without adverse results depending on the heat and watering you can do.

    I have transplanted in summer and fall. Summer you have to be sure to keep everything well watered and in fall, I try to get the rose in the ground so it has a couple of months to get roots established.

    Re: Best time to transplant?

    I just transplanted my roses from one pot to another since the soil in the old pots when I bought them did not look very well - it was hardening like clay. Now it seems like the roses have drooped. Does this mean that it was not a good time to transplant them? What should I do now???

    I'm just a beginner with roses...

    Thanks.

    You got it, bad time to move a rose bush. The rose bush roots are very sensitive and can be dammaged during a move. Wait for the roots to re-establish in the new soil. Don't over fertilize. The bush should revive.

    Thanks for the info. So maybe I should cut off the flowers to ease the shock. Can I still spray some fungicide on them?

    I learned by observing my downstairs neighbor. I thought it odd that she left her roses in the store pot, while I immediately transplanted mine. Guess who's bloomed longest, and most often? You guessed it- not mine. So this year, I've bought more rose bushes, and I'm leaving them in the store pot, (camoflaged in a basket), until the growing season is over, then I'll transplant them.

    I live in zone 8 where the ground hardly ever freezes. I transplant in the winter. One thing that I have found helps the process is to root prune the rose about a month before I plan to move it. This gives the bush time to generate new shorter roots to help in reestablishment.
