Based on a traditional formula, Vitax Organic Rose Food contains the three major plant foods - nitrogen, phosphate and potash - together with natural magnesium to promote healthy green leaves and abundant blooms.
100% organic, made from poultry manure enriched with a high potassium fertiliser derived from sugar beet.
The organic fertiliser improves the structure of the soil and allows nutrients to be released slowly, giving an abundance of blooms throughout the season.
Directions for use:
Note: 1 gloved hand contains approximately 25g
For established plants:
Apply 25g (approx. 1oz) evenly around the base of the plant in early spring., keeping the granules off of the leaves and stems. Hoe in lightly and water if the soil is dry. Repeat application in early June prior to the second flush of blooms.
For new roses:
Mix 50g with the soil in the bottom of the planting hole, ensuring that the hole dug is both deep and wide enough to allow the roots to spread out evenly. The graft union should be around 2.5cm below the soil level.
