The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing Roses

Question: When is the best time to start fertilizing roses?

Answer: You can begin fertilizing roses in the early spring, after new leaves develop. Continue fertilizing every 6 weeks, until late summer, stopping about six weeks before your average first frost of the season. This will help slow growth and allow your roses to harden themselves off for the winter.
