How To: Feed and mulch roses properly

Feed and mulch roses properly

This video shows you how to feed and mulch your roses properly. Choose a fertilizer that is labeled as being especially for roses. It will have the right balance of nitrogen for top growth, phosphorus, which stimulates the bloom, and potassium for root development.

Video covers when to feed the roses, what kind of feed to purchase, and how to accomplish the process. Great video with informative explanations.

Mulch has many benefits. It helps to prevent competing plants from taking root in the rose's territory; it decreases water evaporation and temperature swings in the soil; and it keeps you from running into the rose with the string trimmer.

Andrew Schulman, Fine Gardening author, landscape designer and old rose collector, shows how just a few steps will ensure the health of your roses and suggests a new use for an old remedy.
