Hi Growsonyou,
I know I can't plant a new rose where an old rose has grown-unless I remove the old soil and replace it with new soil and bonemeal etc.
Would it be OK to plant a honeysuckle in it's place?



There shouldn't be a problem - I have roses and honeysuckle growing right next to each other.
Make sure that you dig in some good organic matter or soil improver, as they are woodland plants and love moist fertile soil.

On my Arch I have Graham Thomas Honeysuckle and Golden showers rose growing side by side.
