I just re-located a few established rose bushes. I heard it's good to add some epsom salt to the rose. Should I give the rose bushes some epsom salt to make the relocation smoother and help it establish the roots faster?

So far, I just watered it everyday to make sure it's moist since it's so hot lately and give it some rose food to help it re-establish the roots faster.

A fairly weak solution of epsom salt will boost any of your plants, including the rose. If you want to kill a weed or an unwanted plant, the same epsom salt can be sprinkled on, covered and tied with black plastic to keep the rain off. While an overdose of epsom will kill the weed, any that leaches out will weaken and feed surrounding plants. Win win ! ;)
