All I want to know is how and when to transplant roses -this must be to hard as I cant find an answer

You transplant roses in either spring or autumn, but before the ground freezes. They must establish themselves which takes about 6 to 8 weeks before they are exposed to very cold or wet weather.

Can I use chestnut leaves for leaf mould?

Any diciduous leaves that fall  bob. Just gather them up and if you don't have room for a purpose made mesh bin you can bag them in black bin bags and store them out the way. Make a few holes in them first.

I've never found my bagged leaf mould has fully rotted. Should you occasionally shake them up a bit?

My tip for those lacking lots of leaves - head out and gather some up from a the gutters. Yes there's probably some car pollution in it, but that will likely be over everything already anyhow.

Nick make sure it stays moist in the bag, and shaking them up is ok, it has the same effect as turning compost.
