How can you tell if a standard rose is actually dead? Mine look very woody after transplanting them in April

I transplanted 4 of my standard roses about 2 meters away in April / May. They looked quite sick soon after so I pruned them back so they didn't waste energy on shedding their leaves. However a few months down the track they are looking like twigs that almost snap off. Have I killed them?

Answer: Your roses may be dead. If you have pruned their stems and the wood is brown and dry, not green, it is dead.

If you are still unsure and there is no regrowth in two months time, this is a sign that they are well and truly dead.
