when & how to move rose bushes

I was given two lovely rose bushes as a birthday present back in Feb this year & planted them up in a raised bed straight away as I had nowhere else to put them at the time. They've done quite well with lots of good growth & flowers but I want to move them to their permanent home now I've had a chance to work out where this is to be! When should I attempt this & how please? I've never grown roses before. Help!!!

    No, don't move them until they are dormant. Wait until November and choose a time when the weather isn't icy cold or pouring down.

    thanks waterbutts! I understand thats when you should prune them anyway so it'll make them easier to move also! cheers!
