What a busy spring. I bought the Rose Tone two weeks ago and finially got to putting it out today. This is much later than I had ever gotten it applied before. I even see a bud or two coming on the roses already. Bloom might be early as March was very warm around here. April I think was more normal for this time of year.

So I had bags of Rose Tone and Greensand sitting in the car until I got to spreading them out. I just scoop the fertilizer in a pastic cup and toss it around the roses. Same with the Greensand. Use that each spring also.

I am glad to finially have that chore done. Now I can go back to the nursery and look to buy some annuals to put around the garden.

Rita is Rose Tone a fertilizer?

I tried growing white coneflowers, cherry brandy rudbeckia, and marigolds from seed this year. Many of them are not yet dead!
