Espoma Rose-Tone is a 6-6-4 organic rose fertilizer that has been used for years by professional gardeners to grow prize winning roses. Or, you can mix your own. You'll need a 2 gallon bucket; 1 cup alfalfa meal; 1 cup fish meal; 1 cup greensand; 1/2 cup bonemeal and 1 cup gypsum. Mix together and then spread underneath the rose bush, scratching it lightly into the soil. This makes enough for a single rose bush. You can begin feeding your roses in March. Best wishes with your rose bush.
