DH wanted ROS to fill in and help make a sorta 'hedge' along the W side of our yard.
DD had a few she did not want so we thought we would try to move them to our
house. (the ROS were up agains DD foundation egad)

question:
should my DH prune the ROS or leave it as it was upon "transplanting".
He transplanted 2-----one is just a few canes & one is more like a small bush, from looking at them inside the house. I think they both are about 24 inches-- Are there any rules to this???

Any help would be appreciated.--thanks in advance.

As a general rule that I try to use when transplanting larger plants, i always trim a bit off the top to make up for the root loss, cuz the roots were there for that set amount of top growth, so if any roots were loss, you have to make the top growth proportional...just my two cents

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

pruning to balance for root loss is no longer considered appropriate. the leaves are needed to make food for the plants and should not be removed. the most important thing is to be sure that the roots do not dry out. they need to be protected and kept moist.

Super Thrive is very helpful in transplant survival.

I prune enough off to make the needed room for tools. Often, that means no removal of branches.

That's a small plant, and you should have little problem getting almost the entire root system.
