i need to move my 2 climbing roses due to some minor construction. they have not gotten any buds on yet as we are just really starting spring here so im wondering if the move will hurt them????????? thanks

I have done ALOT of this. They all have made it. Just dig WAY around and under lift up to the wheelbarrel. (Water before you dig it up, the day before would be ideal) And Immediatly put in the next transplant hole. A little epsom salts in the hole would be helpful@ 1/4 Cup. Would help heal the roots. Dont worry. Just keep them moist for awhle. OH and cut them back a bit. And a good amount of mulch would be helpful. So temps wont throw them into shock.
