When can I move a rose bush can I move it now in March

Exact same answer as Stroll, Jackron - we've just planted 30 new roses this weekend into a bed & have put a further 12 climbers into a holding bed to plant in the next fortnight (need to build frame for them 1st). As long as they are in for end of March (ideally), with some good mature / fertiliser & yes, bone meal is very good in helping root growth establish, they will be fine. We've had some really hard frosts recently, so for the next week or so until they climatise I put a thin layer of fleece over to protect the young shoots a bit as they had came from a supermarket & had been kept indoors.
