My mother has a beautiful rose bush in Rockland County New York. I want to dig it up and bring it to Florida. Any special time of year to do this?

I would wait until early spring to make the transplant. It is just easier on the rosebush. When you do make the move, water the rosebush in with some root stimulator and a product called Super Thrive mixed into the same water. This will help get the rosebush off to a great start at getting established in her new home. Here is a link to an article I wrote about this as well:
