Jordan,
I add Seasol or other seaweed stuff to the water and leave it for a while. I think you could then use the water/seasol in your plants.
We dont see any bare rooted roses here till about June or July.

No, they should be fine. I always give everything I plant a good water in with seasol. By the way the cheepest way to buy it is in a 2ltr cask.

As this thread is here I thought I would ask everyone if they are purchasing roses this year and if so what might they be.
I have just about finnished looking at Misty's new online cat and found some interesting new one's that they have not carried in the past, as they say my list has now got longer.

The one bred by Warriner Dave, I think this has great potential of producing something quite spectacular.If Neptune breeds rose and likes lilac/ mauves , cross this with Charles De Gaulle or Blue Moon, reckon you would get a real show stopper.

If Neptune had some property, he would probably try the breeding cycle of roses,....but unfortunately Warren, I lack the space or the property at this moment to indulge further into roses apart from what I have already.......but I am looking.... Wink
