Hi, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb. How do you transplant a rose bush tree? Well, any of your tree roses, or sometimes called standard roses if you got it in the wrong spot, you need to move it, I'd probably do it in the more dormant season. And that may vary a little bit about where you happen to live. But if the ground is workable, sometimes called friable, you can move it just about anytime of the year. Now this means, of course, that you are going to move it as quickly as you can from the old site to the new site. And often, I like to improve the soil. I'll usually add a little peat moss. I'll usually add a little bit of Black Kow cow manure. I really like to make a $10 hole even for my transplants. In fact, I'll do the same due diligence that I did in planting the first time as when I move it the second. So, don't skimp out. Improve that soil, make a $10 hole for your transplant soil, and you normally will have better results. Make sure that you water it on a faithful basis. Normally, when we transplant something, we may lose a little bit of the feeder roots, so it's doubly important for the first, probably couple of weeks, that you water this plant on a daily basis. That's really key to the transplant. Make sure there's no air pockets underneath, and you should have good success. For learning the secrets on how to transplant your rose bush, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
