yes as long as the old rose didnt have any diseases....
Do you prune back the stems of a bare root rose. Mine has a green waxy substance on the larger stems.
I would plant now and prune in late February - we may well get a cold snap before then, and any new growth might get nipped back so if you prune then it will give the resulting new growth a better chance
Agree with Dove and I'd also suggest planting them a little deeper to cover and protect potential buds at the bottom of the stems. Some new roses arrived at about this time last year and had rather a lot of fresh growth on them which was later killed by frosts. I was experimenting with planting depth at the time and out of the 4, the 2 I planted deeper sent up new shoots from the buried stems in the spring and flowered just fine. The two planted with the graft at soil level died.
