I really need to move some of my established rose bushes. Back in 06, my old bedroom had to be torn down. When my new room got built, the builder insisted on putting it in a new spot, so there was this "hole" where the old room was. Two of my sons built me a deck in the hole area. However when we built it, they delivered the wrong lumber and we did not notice until too late. (untreated instead of treated lumber). The deck rotted after a few years and had to be removed. So, that hole is still there. We have been adding rocks and stuff for fill, BUT all kinds of tree starts including mimosa and trumpet vines and other weeds have invaded it. I HAVE been trying to keep them down, but it has gotten out of control anyway. My son that lives here took his electric hedge trimmer in there, but the mess is right back. When he built the deck he put in a lovely trellis for my new rose bushes that I planted there. Back in January 2019, we had a big ice storm, and a huge mimosa came down on the side of the house and trellis. The damage to the house was mimimal. He wants to take down the trellis and remove ALL of that mess. It NEEDS to be done. I think he will use his weed dragon on some of that mess. Since it is very close to my house, THAT will have to be quite cautiously done. That hole is enclosed by 3 house walls. I do NOT use stuff like Round-up and other toxic chemicals around here. There is a bit of downhill incline on two sides to that mess, and run-off would affect about 8 of my rose bushes, and likely kill them all. It would affect my Queen of Sweden (David Austin), two Queen Elizabeth, a burgundy climbing tea rose, my Home Run Knock Out rose, and my parent Fairy Rose bush, and another one I cannot remember the name of. There are some old peonies between two rose bushes also. Things in containers can be moved temporarily. It is still too hot and dry to dig my roses up, but can it be done later in the fall when we have had good rains and cooler weather? I think I want to put my rose bushes in containers instead of the ground. Is that okay too? That way IF need be, they could be easily moved around. There are trumpet vines around these rose bushes and they are a PEST! Hummingbirds love them, but I would be glad to get rid of all of my trumpet vines (they are elsewhere in my yard and have spread to unwelcome places.) The vines are getting under the house siding too. If you don't have trumpet vines, don't get them. I plan to collect ALL the seed pods off of them and burn the pods this fall. Horsey loves to eat the vines, so I will feed her all I can. I do not expect to transplant my Queen of Sweden and that one I forgot the name of, but the others REALLY need to be moved. The Fairy rose babies that I have moved are doing well. Should I prune these bushes back before transplanting also? Any other ideas?
