I have two climbing roses that go up either side of a 4 ft x 8 ft arbor. Last summer we re-landscaped our yard and the level of the ground went up about 7" inches at the location of the arbor, burying the graft union. Will they be OK with the graft union buried, or should I dig them up and replant them so the graft union is above the new ground level?
