Roses all need sufficient nutrients to enable them to produce strong shoots and a magnificent show of flowers. Organic Rose & Shrub Food is a purely organic fertiliser and contains all essential major and micro-nutrients for an abundance of blooms. Thanks to the natural immediate and long-term effects, your roses have a sufficient supply of nutrients for several weeks.
To be able to produce a beautiful flower and strong dark green leaves, rhododendrons also need nutrients. If you haven’t do so already, then feed them now.
Organic Rhododendron, Azalea & Camellia Food contains a balanced composition of nutrients that are specially designed for the needs of rhododendrons. This special organic fertiliser is extremely low in salt and is therefore particularly good for the delicate roots of rhododendrons.
Now is the best time to plant evergreen plants in the garden. All moor plants (such as rhododendrons, heathers, camellia, skimmia, etc.) need an acidic soil for healthy growth. A peat-free soil specially designed to meet the needs of rhododendrons offers a low pH value. Dig a very generous planting hole for rhododendrons. In loamy soils, first add a layer of gravel to the planting hole and then add the peat-free special soil. Carefully place the plant into the prepared planting hole – it should never be planted deeper than it was previously. Water well with Super Strength Seaweed Extract and then only water sparingly in order to promote rooting.
