I have some new roses coming next week,i have 1 rose that has never done much and was thinking about digging this up--replacing part of the soil and putting the new rose in.Is this possible because i seem to remember that you should'nt do this.

Corfiet, don't do it, won't work, reasons complex but NEVER plant a rose in ground from which another rose was removed. The old rose leaves it's "DNA" or something behind on the site and the 'remains' will kill a newer [rose] intruder

Thanks Walltoall,
I did think it was a bad idea---but heard if you replaced the soil it would be ok---think i will take your advice and dig another bed---as long as the frost dont return!!!!!!!!!!
