How to Replant a Rose

Roses are beautiful flowers that are relatively easy to replant! Roses enjoy a lot of sunlight, so you may want to choose a sunnier spot to house them.[1] You can transplant a rose bush to a new spot by carefully digging it up and inserting it into a new, weed-free garden patch. To regrow roses, try planting rose stem cuttings and waiting for them to grow new roots.

Choose a garden spot that is free of weeds and other plants. Roses thrive when they are separate from other plants. Plant your rose bush in a section of the garden with other roses, or alone. Ideally, choose a spot where the roses can permanently reside so they will not have to be transported later.[2]
Use a hand fork to dig up and pull weeds.
Opt for a spot that gets full sunlight.

Make sure your soil is well-draining. Roses will grow best in well-draining soil. Before planting your roses, test your soil is by digging a hole that is 12–18 inches (30–46 cm) wide and 12–18 inches (30–46 cm) deep, then fill it with water. Well-draining soil should not take more than an hour to drain.[4]
To improve poorly-draining soil, add organic matter like compost to it.

Dig a hole at least 15 inches (38 cm) deep for your rose bush. Use a garden trowel to dig out a new spot for your rose bush. Prepare a hole that is about 15 inches (38 cm) deep. The hole should also be at least 12 inches (30 cm) wide, or large enough to accommodate your rose bush.[5]
Wear gardening gloves to protect your hands as you dig.

Build a small mound of soil in the center of the hole. Use a garden trowel to pile some of the soil you removed from the hole back into the center of it. Make a small mound that is about 1–2 inches (2.5–5.1 cm) tall for the rose bush to rest on. Gently pat down on the soil to firm the mound
