Fertilize roses after new leaves appear. Roses like fertile, rich soil. You can fertilize and enrich the soil around your rosebushes with this special mixture:Your favorite rose fertilizer (follow the package directions for how much to add)4 cups compost2 cups aged steer manure for each rosebushUsing a broom handle, make four 6-inch deep holes about 1 foot away from the base of your rosebush. Then add the mixture to each hole and water deeply. By adding this fertilizer-compost-manure mixture in these holes, you are placing it right where the roses' roots are located.Do this every spring and you will be rewarded with healthy, green rosebushes covered in beautiful blooms.
