planting plants on top of roots

Anonymous added on July 13, 2015 | Answered

My family has a vine that we planted a couple years ago. The bed that the roots are in hasn't been used in a while. I would like to plant some roses, sunflowers, and other plants to make the area more interesting. The bed gets sun but it also has shade due to our tree branches. The sun hits the bed closes to the vine. I tried to dig a hole in the ground today, sadly hitting the roots pretty early off. Is it okay if I plant the roses on top of these roots or should I try to plant my new plants some other locations?

I really would look for a new location.

The plants may do ok for a short time but over time the roots will compete and you could lose both plants.
