That is a new term for me also. So I looked.
I found this link which advises us to 'marshal our potting soil' and to 'marshal our tools',
http://www.proplants.com/guide...

My guess is that the writer is using a military term asking us to keep our potting soil 'in proper order' and to keep our gardening tools 'in proper order'...see definition #9 here:

Sorry, that's the best I can do.

You could try sending an email to Samantha Green at ProPlants to see is she can clarify the meaning in her use of the word in relationship to growing roses. Shrug!

Marshal can also mean to assemble or gather together. My guess is that it just means to collect together what you need for the job.
