When is the best time to shift roses in the garden, before or after pruning in July?

Hi Fiona,

Roses can be prone to transplant shock so the best time to relocate them would be after pruning in July when the rose is dormant with no active growth. When it comes time to transplant the rose, make sure that the risk of frosts (or freezing weather) has passed and dig in plenty of compost to your roses’ new home. Make sure the new hole is large enough to accommodate the roses’ roots comfortably and be sure to give it a good water.

We recommend picking an overcast day to move any shrubs and trees around the garden.

Thanks the Palmers team
