I fertilized all roses today. If you are a rose in a raised bed or in the ground, I fed you Mills Magic Rose Mix. This product is a combination of alfalfa meal, fish meal, steamed bone meal, cottonseed meal, blood meal, activated sludge, and an organic compost activator. NPK analysis is 6-5-1. It will do wonders for your roses!
If you are a potted rose in my garden, you were fed “Moo Poo” Tea. A good friend from Twitter is the owner of Haven Brand soil conditioners. I purchased a variety pack consisting of Cow Manure, Horse Manure & Alfalfa for roses. You brew up a batch in a 5 gallon container and just drop the tea bag into the water for 1-3 days, then apply liberally to roses. This is the first year to use this product and I am excited to see the results.
It is my endeavor this year to only feed with organic fertilizers
