Moving roses and shrubs

Posted: 25/09/2016 at 13:00

My neighbour gave me 5 roses last year, no idea what the were, colour or size. They have done ok this year but are in the wrong place, when can I move them. Also when can I move 2 Hebes which have been in my planter boxes since March but are getting too big. 😀😀😀😀

Thank you, I am looking forward to seeing how many survive the winter, I hope it's a mild one again.

Thank you to all the gardeners who take the time to answer my questions, over the years I have had lots of advice.

The fuchsias and trailing Geraniums I bought  this year have been fantastic, they are currently in large wooden boxes, can I overwinter them in my  unheated greenhouse. I thought of putting them into pots, cutting them down and removing the leaves, wrapping the pots in newspaper and covering them with fleece. Would this work.

I did that some years ago with a Photinia Red Robin, it's now a lovely 7' standard, but I would not have thought to do it with the Bottle Brush, thank you.

You have given me an idea, I might prune all the underneath of mine and gently prune the top to lift it up, it's the underneath that's scraggly.

Thanks, mine is looking leggy and probably past its best, but I will prune it as suggested and give it another year.

I don't like it that much, been spoiled by the ones in Australia, but it fills a space. So will prune it. Thanks for your response.
