I have this beautiful Yellow minature rose bush that is planted between two regular size rose bushes and it is getting smothered out. For Valentine's Day, I gave a friend one of those minature roses as a hostess gift and she planted it in a good size pot outdoors and it was doing beautifully the last time I was to visit her which has been a few months ago. Of course, all she has to do is look at a plant and it grows for her! Do you think I would be wise to wait till Spring to move it or would I risk moving it now so it has the winter to adjust to its new location?

You can move it now if you think it has time to settle in before dormancy

I moved a lot of mine this spring and they all did fine. I would winter protect and wait.

If weather permits, the task of moving it will be on next week's list.
