I am moving to another town. From 5b to 6a about 300 miles away. I am diging the roses up now and the root ball in not staying in tac. I hope to plant them in two weeks assuming there is no snow. Should I keep them bare root or put them in pots? If there is snow, how should I take care of them until spring.

If they are completely dormant you can bare root them. Wrap them in newspaper and keep them damp, cool and in a dark place. If they're not dormant yet I would pot them up.
