Rose planting question

they say you should never plant roses wher you had planted roses before. Does anyone know why? And can it be overcome? Owners of big rose gardens obviously do so what do they do ?

    Hi hogweed , I am in the process of replacing a rose with another one. I am going to replace the soil and use mycorrhizal fungi. Mycorrhizal fungi alone is supposed to be good enough, it help associate the plant roots with soil.

    I saw chris beardshaw replace a rose and beachgroove last year using M-fungi .

    I would of thought disease why you shouldn't replant where a rose has been.
