Can I move my rose?

lydiaannlydiaann Posts: 291
Five weeks ago, I was given a rose - I've yet to find its tag so can't remember its name - which I put into the garden almost immediately as we were due to go away for a week.  I have now removed a large, old hebe and this space is far more suitable.  Despite it being recently planted, can I move the rose to this better space?  It's healthy and has flowered well (currently awaiting next group of buds to open - smallish, pink-blushed white blooms) but is hidden by a ligularia.  Advice, pretty please, Forkers:)

    Probably. If it was pot grown, I suspect the roots will still be in a pot shape.
     Make sure you remember to water it in well, and keep on watering through the summer.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Yes, shouldn't be a problem as it hasn't been in the ground that long. Just make sure the new planting hole is ready prepared so that it isn't out of the ground too long and keep an eye on the watering.

    Great, thanks a lot both of you - I shall do it.  However, I think today is out as it is bucketing down right now...maybe tomorrow!  Thanks again:)

    Just an update:  moved it and it has taken quite happily (yes, it was still quite 'pot shaped') to the extent that new growth is now doing well again.  Thanks a lot!
