Transplanting a young rose
Last fall I bought a 'Carding Mill' and a 'Benjamin Britten' in November. They were completely defoliated and $10 each but I figured they'd perk right up this spring. I put them in a temporary bed for the winter and moved them to another temporary spot about two months ago. They've each put on about 12-18" of growth and are blooming and healthy looking.
Now their permanent home is ready and I want to move them as soon as possible. Should I expect transplant shock and cut them back, shade them, etc... or will transplanting roses that have been so recently moved be more like planting the potted up 'Julia Child's that will go into the new bed with them?
Gratuitous photo of BB today. A little overexposed (getting a picture that shows the true color of a bright red or pink flower is so hard!) but still pretty.
