Winter rose planting
Gardens just would not be complete without the magnificent scented rose flowers and winter is the best time to plant roses for great spring growth.
POSITION FOR ROSES – Roses love a full sun position and like room around them so they don’t become overcrowded.
SOIL PREP – Now the real trick for roses is in the soil preparation. Roses love a rich organic soil, full of fertiliser. For best results dig a hole and fill with Searles Fruit, Citrus & Rose Mix. Plant your roses straight into this planting mix. This mix will fertilise plants for 4 months. Ideal for roses in pots too.
FERTILISING ROSES – For future fertilising use a liquid fertiliser which promotes strong growth and helps protect roses from fungal diseases. SeaMax Fish & Kelp does both.
