Transplanting Roses

Wait until the first hard freeze, then dig the rose leaving a soil ball at least 12" in diameter and move immediately to a well-prepared bed mixing compost, lava sand, Texas greensand, dry molasses, granite sand and whole cornmeal into the native soil. Also apply an alfalfa-based organic fertilizer at about 15 lbs per 1000 sq ft.
