Ok to use bananas and coffee on newly planted roses?
This will be my first year of real rose growing, so I'm still learning. I just put 10 rose bushes in the ground on Wednesday. A combination of Austins and Hybrid Teas (which I realize will need a lot of extra TLC in my climate). I ammended my sandy soil with a little bit of peat moss and cow manure. The plants seem healthy, obviously they haven't had time to do anything yet. I was just wondering if it's too soon to start adding banana peels and coffee grounds to the soil for some extra food?
I made my significant other start saving them earlier this week. He thinks I'm nuts, but I heard they make great rose food and I love the idea of recycling.
Any other tips for a newbie would be greatly appreciated. I don't know anything about organic gardening, but I'm eager to learn.
