I am moving and i would like to take some of my roses with me, can i re plant them



The roses and any other plants in the garden are included in the sale, unless it was specified to the prospective purchasers that they were excluded from the sale. The purchaser is buying the house and garden in the condition that they viewed it.

If the roses have been in any length of time it would probably be better to get new ones for your new home. Or you could try taking cuttings of ones you like. My mother in law had a rose that was grown from a cutting from the rose that grew on the house that was the "ancestral home" of the family many generations back. :-)

They had had to leave that country, but still felt they had a link to it.

I agree take masses of cuttings. It would be tragic to put those roses through the stress of moving.

I have a cutting of a David Austin Benjamin Brittan which is healthier and happier than the original of my mothers...which irks her terribly. It takes three years to get them going but is worth it. Plus you have the perfect excuse to buy some new roses while the cutting mature.
