I thought this week for Fertilizer Friday I would fertilize the roses, something I rarely remember to do.
I bought some new organic rose and flower food to try. Normally I should've fertilized after pruning the roses, but I forgot to do that this year. Fertilizing should also be done when the first flush of flowers is fading. That is about now for most of my roses. I followed all of the directions since this was a new one for me to use. I gave them all a good watering and am hoping to see if it makes a difference.
Pink 'Flower Carpet Rose' and a little pollinator pal.
The unknown pink, came with the house, rose.
'Honey Perfume' has several buds now.
'Abraham Darby' is getting ready to put on a second show.
'Iceberg' has been so full of flowers I needed to stake it up.
Somehow while I went out only to fertilize the roses I ended up transplanting three plants that had nothing to do with fertilizer or roses. I don't think I ever go out to do just one thing and not end up doing several other things as well.
It's the last day of school here today, so there is one happy kid in our house this morning!
