There is nothing more beautiful than growing your own gorgeous roses, gardenia’s, azaleas and camellias. Trevor shows you his secret for getting the best and brightest bloom.

Trevor’s Top Tips

  • These particular plants are flower-producing machines and they need special nutrient rich soil to reach their potential.
  • Osmocote Professional Roses, Gardenias, Camellias and Azalea potting mixture utilises a special formula designed for plants that prefer a low pH soil.
  •  These acid loving plants produce superior results when started in the right soil.
  • Autumn is the best time of year to plant bare rooted roses, for best results plant each bare rooted rose into a minimum of 10 litres of this soil mixture.
