Please help me move (or not) my mom's rose

9 years ago

This rose lived in Toronto for 15 years. It is a Queen Elizabeth I think. 12 years ago when mom died, I transplanted it to zone 6 in Massachusetts. We are moving to Maine zone 5 whenever the house sells which if it did tomorrow (highly unlikely), would take 6 weeks to close. There won't be a spot in Maine to plant until November 30 (house completion). Should I water, prune stems and roots and put in a pot now or wait until the end of October and plan on overwintering pot in a hole in Mass or Maine or don't do this until I know the house is sold. We will put house back on market in March and I could dig it up in April.

Grateful thanks to all who take time out of their gardens to help me with this.
