Roses are a wonderful and romantic addition to any garden. Nige shows us how to achieve the most beautiful and healthy-looking roses.

  • The Iceberg Rose is a medium-sized white floribunda and one of the most popular of all roses.
  • The Osmocote Gardenia and Azalea Premium Potting Mix is ideal for potting roses and also other acid-loving plants.
  • Osmocote has high levels of iron and magnesium to produce lush foliage and to help eliminate the yellowing and premature dropping of rosebuds.
  • The Osmocote mix must sit at the same level as the top of the root ball and a little below the rim of the pot to allow for easy watering and to add some mulch on top.
  • Osmocote for Roses contains essential nutrients that help roses to thrive by feeding and releasing nutrients according to the temperature of the soil for up to 6 months.
  • The ‘Plus Organic’ Variety includes organic pellets that feed the soil and are ideal for roses that are planted in the ground.
