So, I'd read that now was a good time to move roses and at the weekend, we moved a couple of lovely ones from the front to back garden. We invested in some decent rose compost and dug big holes, watered in well. When OH dug them up, there were just roots but no root ball, i.e no soil. We planted as soon as we could but does anyone think they'll survive? Also, I hadn't realised you were only meant to do it when they were dormant but there are still some buds that look ready to open - I didn't want to snip them as they look so pretty but should I really cut them back to help them live?
Thank you in advance
