Rose transplanting question
Well, I've planted the peony and all that is left is the Madame Hardy rose.
The spot I want to put it is where the once-thought-dead Kaitlin Ainsley rose is. The K.A. is only supposed to get to around four feet high and the M.H. is supposed to get to around six feet high. So, I'd rather move the K.A. up towards the front and put the M.H. where the K.A. was.
But, the K.A. had been thought dead and is going very slowly. Will I disturb it by moving it??
That is my main concern. Both roses are not that big so it is not as if they will really crowd anyone out. but, the K.A. does not have any real canes yet, just foliage on short stems about five inches above the ground and the M.H. is already 2 1/2 feet high or so.
My other idea is to just leave the K.A. where it is and put the M.H. in a spot for now only to move everything next year, when the K.A. is healthier.
Does it even matter? Am I making this a bigger deal than need be?
I'd love some ideas.
