The bush is way too large for it's location. It is about 12 years old and very hardy. Do I try to move whole bush (7') or take a part? and how soon?
In case you meant to post this on the regular Roses Forum, I'll put a link below.
While you're here at Name That Rose, maybe you could check the photos from another poster on the thread: "name yellow climber" -- I think it's Harison's Yellow

You are in the wrong forum.
I moved two sprouts that were quite large. I ended up needing to cut them back to get them to leaf out. They were certainly set back by the move. This season, I am severing my sprouts and leaving them in the ground until later in the season. An option to moving is taking cuttings.
when do you suggest moving a sprout?
I've moved them in early spring and fall and the sprouts suffered both times. That's why I'm severing them from the main plant and leaving them to develop roots.
The Rose Forum is a better place for this thread and there are more experienced people to offer advice.
