Reminders for this plant

Due over 14 years ago:

Swap the pink david austin rose with elegnus.

at some stage over the weekend i need to swap the rose for the elegnus, for two reasons, in right hand bed the elegnus looks odd in the middle of two other roses with colour wise should go well with noble anthony. and secondly. in the left hand bed where the rose is now is far to close to the scabby rose from next door and i have read that new roses should'nt be planted in the same place as old one as this can cause desease - and the scabby rose is riddled!
