Moving a rose bush

Posted: 28/09/2012 at 18:11

I have a rose bush which I planted a year ago, however I realise now after quite a lot of heavy rain this year it is in a spot where water seems to collect, so I want to re-plant it in slightly higher place.  Is now a good time to do it?  It has long finished flowering and I am wondering do I lift it as it is, or do I prune it right back (it is sill only only small)

Thanks

Thank you for the reassurance and apologies for the late reply!  Yesterday I noticed a couple of the buds getting a little bigger so fingers crossed!  I have cut a few of the really tight buds off as the plant is only quite small so am I right in thinking this is the correct thing to do so it can focus it's energy on the bigger buds?

Also, how much sun does a rose bush need?  Mine gets full sun for about half the  morning then again later in the afternoon - is this enough?!

Or am I just worrying too much!

Hi I have a rose bush which I planted last October, it seemed to start growing ok during spring (about 2 foot tall - is this normal?), but I am forever brushing off aphids and putting ladybirds near it!  Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed loads of buds forming on it, however these are still really small and don't seem to be getting any bigger.  Also I have just noticed there are a few white spots on some of the leaves.

I have read all sorts about the various diseases, fungal problems and pests etc you can get with roses and am a bit confused as to what is best to do!

Thanks
