>On the advice of many articles and some friends, I purchased Fish Emulsion to put on my roses. I fed them this morning and will rotate on a 3 week rotation of this feed, and the others I use. It smells awful. Our dog, Indie tried to lick up the run off. I am glad our backyard is fenced, I am told we would have all sorts of varmints trying to find the fish.
I am still plagued with black spot. Also, tiny bugs on the roses which damages the bloom. It does seemed to have slowed since I began spraying last week. I will spray again tomorrow morning.
My feed, water and spray schedule is done early morning (before 6:30 a.m.). Some tell me to water in the late evening, not in the morning. Any thoughts on this????
