Blood and Bone for roses

Post by dannyboy on 26th September 2015, 04:07

Have used it this season to feed the roses and have been impressed with the response of the roses.A lot of growth and water shoots and buds etc in very little time.It has the added Potash in the Blood and Bone to which is a bonus.

Danny, did you use this instead of say Sudden Impact for Roses? I'm assuming so. Also, "the B shop"!! Do you mean Bunnings?! LOL

Make sure that the blood and bone you use has Potash added if not buy a of Potash and add it to the Blood and Bone. You only need to apply the granulated stuff once a year. You can buy liquid Potash but you need to apply it more often.

Australian soils are low on Potassium and no matter how much manure of other organic fertilizer you add it will not lift the its level.

Thank you Gary. I bought some liquid Potash and was wondering how often to apply it?
When i bought some tomato plants recently (yesterday!), I was told to add potash when the flower buds arrived. Is this right? Ooops.... sorry, off subject! Embarassed Just wanted to know from the experts!! LOL

Sue

Potash seems to leach out of the soil fairly quickly so you need to apply the liquid stuff fairly regularly. On the bottles is says every 2-3 weeks from before flowering until flowering finishes.

We use the granular product and have started putting it on every six months. I was talking to an long time grower and he puts granular stuff on every two months from the end of winter through to mid Autumn. He grows a lot of Austin's and has no problem with blackspot or mildew.

I had a look at the B Shop the other day. Most of the Blood and Bone with added potash still only has minimal amount of potash. Yates Premium NPK of 8:5:1 Richgro 8:1:1 Baileys 6:1:2 (the final figure is the Potassium).

Sudden impact rose fertilizer has a ratio of 9:4:12 which is pretty normal for rose fertilizer so I would suggest that even if you use the potash added product you look at adding some more.

MOP..muriate of potash
SOP..sulphate of potash

I was talking to someone at our garden day about it and he said that the Adelaide Uni (I think that is who he said) did some tests using all the chemicals, milk etc and they found that most effective control of powdery mildew was to hose the plants with water a couple of times a day to wash the spores off.

This is in line with an old rose grower who recommended in a book (not sure which one) that overhead watering in the afternoon was the best method of control which is completely opposite to the normal recommendations so far as watering goes.

I have always said that we don't get as much in Spring if we have decent rain in August which also follows along that line.
