Spring is in the air and I receive a lot of questions on rose care. So let’s focus on rose care for April.
Now is the time to begin a proper fertilization schedule, and at each step be sure to water well the night before fertilizing:
- For the first week use an organic fertilizer, scratch into the earth and water.
- Two weeks later, use a water soluble fertilizer.
- Use a fish emulsion once per month to help get microorganisms growing.
And remember, if you have newly planted roses, DO NOT fertilize, until after their first bloom!
