Question by sddean

I live in Memphis, Tn. I have 5 rose bushes (unsure what kind)that I was given last summer. I have some fertilizing liquid (beat juice I think) to mix with water and spray on them. I also use coffee grounds, egg shells, and banana peels. I was wondering if those were ok to use and when do I start fertilizing them again? Thank you.

You can feed roses when they are actively growing. Wait until you see new leaves beginning to form and start feeding then. Enjoy your roses!
