rose bush problems?

We bought three rose bushes the last one we decided to spend more money and got a $20 rose bush planted it. it did okay for a month of two but buy mid September it was dead. The last two we bought also died, i water in the morning like supposed to, it gets plenty of sun. My new neighbors actually moved in and planted 7 rose bushes along our adjoining fence. Less than 5 feet away and there doing just fine. What are we doing wrong?

Well I don't have a lot of information to go on here. It would help to have a description of what the roses looked like before they died? Did they turn yellow first? Were they bare root or potted to begin with? What is your soil like? How often did you water? Give me a few more facts and I can probably help."
