Jeneeva, Hi there, and good to hear that you are moving forward with the project.

The wild type rose will transplant well, they store them bare-root all the time. as far as splitting at the roots, well, I suppose you could try it, but a better way might be to root cuttings in a pot, or graft cuttings onto other roses. The strawberries and herbs (specifics might help here) should transplant easily, if they are still dormant, if not, cut them back a bit and move them. If you need to put them into holding for a while, pot them up. As far as Jerusalem Artichokes - you can't kill them, as hard as I've tried. Just grab a few of the tubers and away you go! I know almost nothing about acacias, so perhaps someone else can pitch in their knowlege here. But generally, transplanting trees and shrubs can be done with fair success if the plant is healthy and it is given good care before and after the move. Try root-pruning (deep shovel cutting at the roots at the drip line). This should help the plant send out new feeder roots before you move it. Some shrubs can be cut back pretty hard, but it will depend on the variety. Hope that helps a bit, and best of luck!
