Sorry, I don't have the patience to grow these massive bushes. Most of mine are in 200mm pots awaiting a buyer.
However I'm down sizing the nursery to put more effort into breeding and smelling the roses. Will be doing more custom bud grafting in the future at $7.50 per plant .

I have been growing roses for 40 years and agree with Finbarr,s previous post, organics are the way to go. Build up the soil and check PH, have good drainage and 6 hours sun per day.
Keep the soil aerated around them and make a good supply of compost readily available. Stable manure, deep litter poultry manure, cow manure and Lucerne hay or chaff make wonderful ingredients for garden beds. Deep water your roses so they don't dry out.
If you must spray for exhibition purposes then wear proper protective clothing. I never spray as I value my health and not going to compromise my immune system for anything. Use commercial organic fertilisers at half strength. Chippers are a sound investment provided they have large capacity, don't buy one of those small ones.
Sorry there is no magic bullet like a commercial fertiliser you can sprinkle around your roses wearing your best suit.

Sorry David I would not like to divulge his name without permission but all the exhibitions would know who I'm referring to. I had never seen fantastic roses like his before and since.

I referred to the advice, "Use half the amount of fertiliser
suggested by the manufacturer".

The worn juice tea is a different grower who also gets excellent results. The leaves look so healthy using it as a spray.

Hope this clears up any misunderstanding.

Can anyone tell me how long do you generally wait before fertilizing new roses bought as bare rooted in Winter. Also I had some roses on order for a few weeks and only received them this week. They have shot very pale looking shoots during transit. What do you think my chance of survival will be. They are very thin stemmed.
Happy Gardening

Oh Dear Dianne! What a shame. Would giving them a good soak in seaweed solution help do you think?

bareroot can be planted with worm castings in bottom of hole....then soak with seasol and you can continue to do this with fish emulsion for about a year before using chemicals......others may vary on this who bare root all the time.....

Apologies for my ignorance Neptune, but do you mean, in this case, you would only give the rose Seasol for the first year and then feed it with fertilizer there after?

Thanks for the info on the feeding guys, I will take it all into my memory bank. I did soak the roses in seaweed for a little over 24hrs.
Thanks Again

Powerfeed liquid fertiliser by the seasoil company should be fine after about 3 to 4 weeks.I use it always on my firsy year roses and does wonders.

Wow this has generated some conversation over the past few weeks. I have been off the air with the flu, but am trying to catch up now and have read the posts. Very interesting. The worm juice I use is to be diluted 20 to 40 ml per litre and we use 400mls per 100litres on the roses at Old Parliament House Rose Gardens and National Rose Gardens with great success. I am also trying to post some photo's of my garden and some of my roses.

Cheers

Dimmity,
Thank you I have the garden going well at the moment, we have open garden on 23 November coming up and it is always a lot of work before that but well worth the effort because we always make improvements each year. Our garden is only six years old this Nov.
Cheers
