Roses grow best in all day sunshine, in rich, well draining soils. If yours is not growing, it is unhappy in its present situation. Next spring you can dig the plants up and replant, either in a sunnier place or in the same place if it gets at least 8 hours of sunshine. Before replanting, amend the soil with lots of organic matter (compost, etc.) to help the soil drain quickly yet hold just the right amount of moisture. The compost will also release nutrients into the soil which will help the plants perform well. Be sure to feed every 4-6 weeks with a rose food (as suggested on the fertilizer label). Best wishes with your roses!
