Hello, I've been trying to read as much as I can on this forum about roses since I am new to them, and there are so many posts that inspired me to try some in my yard this spring.
I am worried that I planted some new roses too close to my pool's edge foundation. The foundation is on a slight hill, and is 3 ft tall off of the ground. I planted six David Austin Roses along this foundation:
2 Jubilee Celebration
2 Carding Mill
I planted them about 4 ft apart, maybe a little more. There are no other plants back there besides some wildflowers that came back from the seeds I planted last year.
My worry is that I planted them too close to the foundation for them to spread out. There is plenty of room on the one side of the plants that faces outward, but the sides of the shrubs that are closest to the foundation, are anywhere from 1 to 1.5 ft out from the foundation. They're leaning a bit towards the wall because I planted at an angle, in deep holes since I'm Zone 5.
I planted so many climbing roses around the property as my first project about 2 weeks ago, that I think I just forgot that these were shrubs and didn't need to be at a 45 degree angle pointed towards a wall.
I planted them 2 days ago and they seem to be doing well. Is it a good idea to dig them up gently today and move them further out from the pool's wall?
Thanks for any tips and help with this, I'm really excited to get into roses after being a bit intimidated for so many years. Hopefully this one area will do well since the buds I've seen open on these six plants so far are pretty amazing.
Edit: Just a note- The canes look closer to the wall then the center/crown because they're at an angle. So the crown area are about 1-2 ft each from the wall itself, and then the branches lean a bit towards the pool wall
