moving a rose bush

Anonymous added on September 22, 2015 | Answered

It's late September and I am moving. I have 2 rose bushes with great meaning. Can I dig them up and keep in a plastic nursery pot through winter? What's my best bet, as time is running out?

You will want to get as much of the root ball as possible. So get large pots with drainage holes. Wait as long as you can before digging them out. Hopefully we will get some cold weather and frosts before you have to do so. It would be better if they were getting the message to take their winters nap before being dug out.
