Transplanting rosebushes once they have started leafing out is risky. It can stunt their growth and production for the entire season. If it must be done, I highly recommend watering them with some water that has a product called Super Thrive in it the day prior to the move. Then once moved, water them in with some water that has both some super thrive and a root stimulator in it. Water the transplanted rosebushes with a fresh batch of the mix the next 5 to 6 times they need watering. The super thrive helps them deal with the shock and stress of the transplanting and the root stimulator helps get their root systems growing well. Applying some Bayer Tree & Shrub granules around the base of each rosebush, working in lightly, then water lightly. Will help keep the insects away that attack the foliage. Apply at rate for ornamental shrubs on the label. Or apply a spray on insecticide of choice, spraying all foliage well.
