How to Make Rose Nutrition
- Add first ingredients to soil around planted rosebush.
If you work it into the soil a bit, be careful to keep it at least 6 inches away from the crown of the bush to avoid disturbing roots.
- Then add compost or chopped leaves on top.
If you just put the Nutrition recipe on top of the soil and then cover with compost or leaf mulch, you can put it about 1 to 2 inches away. It will decompose over time and does not have to be worked into the soil.
- Lastly water very well and sit back and watch it GROW!
