I have wild violets taking over some of my landscaping. Just wondered if they will keep bushes I have planted from growing.
If the shrubs you planted are very young and small then you may want to use a hoe to keep the wild violets back from the bushes until the bushes have had a season or two to establish themselves. Generally, wild violets don't pose a major problem for established bushes, but they can be a nuisance for your lawn and flowerbeds. Right here on GardeningKnowHow.com there are instructions on how to treat wild violets: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/violet/kill-wild-violets.htm
