Q.Transplanting Rosebushes.

Zone Portland Oregon | Anonymous added on October 18, 2023 | Answered

I am needing to move some rosebushes, to be able to put up a new fence. Can I dig them up and put them in large pots until I can get the fencing done. Then I will also need to remove some sod to replant them. Could I hold them in pots, through the winter and put them in the ground in February?

Yes, you can move them into pots, but be sure they are large enough to hold the entire rootball. Wait till after the danger of frost has passed before replanting them and, during the winter, keep them in a protected area free from cold winds. These articles should help:
