Time to Start Feeding your Roses

Miri Talabac, Behnkes’ buyer of shrubs (including roses),  reminds us that now’s the perfect time to start feeding our roses.  She recommends Rose-tone, and nags us all to follow package instructions (though thankfully it’s organic, so it’s hard to overdo). Then feed monthly through July and once again in October to promote root growth.
