I have a well established Grey Rose which I need to move.
Would now be a good time or should I wait a while.




For transplant the better season is the spring now it's too cold for do that

Thank you, I did think this might be the case but thought i'd ask those with more knowledge, am learning slowly!

I disagree. I'd do it anytime now as long as the ground is not frozen. Take the plant out with as much rootball as you can manage. Prepare the planting hole first so that the roots are exposed for as little time as possible and don't forget to water it all year. Firm it in well so it doesn't get rocked by wind.

Yes - get it in while it's dormant to give it a good chance of rooting before the spring. Prune it in march and give it a feed.

Thanks all, will get onto it next week.
