Q.Is it too late to transplant knockout rose bushes

Zone Long Island, New York | Marybethmartin added on May 26, 2015 | Answered

Is it too late to transplant knockout rose bushes on Long Island and, if so, when is a good time to transplant? Our knockout roses are being overtaken by Leland cypress and need to be moved.

It is late to do the transplanting now and could stunt their growth and could kill them. Typically the time to move/transplant rosebushes is either early Spring before they start to leaf out or very late fall once they have slowed down and gone at least somewhat dormant. I like to water the transplanted rosebushes with some water that has a product called Super Thrive in it. If it is an early Spring move, I also add some root stimulator in the water as well.
