Can I take out a rose and replace with another in the same place.
Just try it and see my friend, nothing ventured nothing lost!! Just add good quality compost to the soil. I would and please let us know what happens!

Thanks for that Great but I was told that a new one would not flourish if planted in the same place, something about "Rose sickness"
Then someone else said it was an old wives tale !
Never heard of that! Im always replanting the same thing in the place where i took one from-- works for me. But its up to you
Thanks again Great.
Am thinking ! ( and that can be painful ) lol
I dont agree I wouldnt plant a rose where one has grown before unless I removed the soil and left it with manure for a season. But there is a newish product on the market you can dig in that then enables you to plant in the same place. Its called 'Rootgrow'
This is a quote from Fractal which I think will help you? "This soil removal thing has now been completely alleviated by planting with a product called Rootgrow. It's a "friendly" fungus that colonises the roots of the plant for the rest of the plants life. It completely stops any problem with rose replant sickness. David Marriott from David Austin Roses told us that it effectively creates a secondary root system around the roses own roots giving better nutrient uptake, a degree of resistance to the effects of drought and the above mentioned protection against the pathogen that causes replant sickness".
Think I'd eer on the side of caution and not plant another rose in same place at all.

Thanks Drc and MG, trouble is I love roses but don't have much space and the one I would like to take out is getting on my nerves as it blooms one day and practically the next day it sheds its petals.
Have to admit I am very wary, would not be happy if I went to a lot of trouble and money and a new one did not thrive .
Still thinking !
Is there a different shrub you can move to where the rose currently is and then put the new rose where that shrub is?
No shrubs, but have a Jasmine in a pot,...... thats a good idea !
Do you think roses thrive in pots !
There are 'Patio roses' that do well in containers. I have one called Sweet dreams which is a compact dwarf with clusters of small roses and fragrant. Unfortunately its prone to black spot.
How do I say thanks?
