Fertilizing / spraying bugs
Should minis be fertilized throughout the growing season? I have some organic rose food that I purchased and I applied some in the spring. The plants are all blooming beautifully now and I'm not sure what the rules are about fertilizing. I know with clematis, you're not supposed to fertilize while they're in bud/bloom, but not sure about roses.
Also, I sprayed them a couple of weeks ago because they had tiny white bugs on the buds (I've also seen these same bugs on my columbine buds). I suppose they must be aphids. How often should they be sprayed?
