Roses are hungry, thirsty plants and they can be a bit funny about competing with other plants. I wouldn't have thought they would like being underneath a conifer hedge unless you have super enriched soil. They often need a few hours of sun each day as well - would they get that there?
Also - how large are the roses expected to grow? - would they have enough room to spread their wings in front of the hedge assuming the soil was good enough?
Roses which are in poor, dry soil and / or cramped conditions will not flourish and will be very prone to disease such as black spot.
