organic fertilizer

arakwordNovember 10, 2006

I am planting a new rose garden and am curious about how to feed them organically. I am planning on using compost tea and fish emulsion, but am not sure how often to do this or if I can even use both. Help please?

Compost tea and fish emulsion are great for the soil and will activate the beneficial microorganisms to outgrow and out compete the pathogens and fungi that can cause rose diseases. Use compost tea as often as you have it. Fish emulsion is diluted according the label and used typically once a week. THey both work great together. There is a premix organic fertilizer called Rose Tone that can be used once a month. Rose Tone can be purchased at gardening stores and big box stores like Lowes or HD.
