Q.Tips for Transplanting a Rose Bush
I moved the first of the year and left my beautiful rose bush behind, The new family said I can come and get it. Well I live in Michigan and it gets pretty cold so I was wondering if I can dig it up now and hold on to it and plant it next spring after April?
This is really sad to know about your plants. You know the same happened with my plants this winter but then one of my friends shared some botanic article and there I read about certain fertilizers to save plants from seasonal effects. It really worked for me.
Maintain an eye fixed at the soil's moisture over the winter so it does no longer dry out. you do not need to hold it wet, simply moist. Make certain their soil depth is deeper than normal so that they'll establish a great root gadget.
You certainly could plant the rosebush in a big pot and keep it in the garage for the winter. Keep an eye on the soils moisture over the winter so it does not dry out. You don't want to keep it wet, just moist. Also when planting it in the pot to overwinter it, place a couple tablespoons of Super Phosphate in the bottom soils. That will help keep the roots fed and healthy for the winter. Don't use triple super phosphate as that is a bit too hot for this use. Then plant the rosebush outside in the early spring once the ground gets to where it can be worked okay.
