Tips and Facts
- Roses need regular feeding to sustain vigorous growth, promote strong root development and build disease resistance.
- To control black spots on roses spray the foliage regularly with a Triforine based product and always water the base of the plant rather than the leaves.
- To protect your plants from drying build up a mound of soil or planting mix around the base and keep the rose plant moist.
