I have tomato plants planted right next to my wildflowers in one flower bed. If you spray your rosebushes with any systemics, it would be best not to plant the tomato or pepper plants close by. It would be better to keep the edibles at one end and the roses at the other. Even granular systemic treatments for roses and flowers would not be good to have in the same soils with your edible plants. That is why I have my tomatoes planted by the wildflowers as I do not use anything on those but water and occasional fertilizer.
