    Often at the end of summer you can see young reddish shoots with succulent foliage on roses. Some gardeners, wanting to strengthen them, feed the plants with a small dose of fertilizer with nitrogen. This cannot be done! Such shoots will not have time to ripen and will freeze in the winter. In addition, a rose “stimulated” with nitrogen will not be well prepared for wintering.

    I feed my plants with phosphate at the end of August, and closer to mid-September with potassium magnesia (according to the instructions). Experienced rose growers recommend alternating root and foliar (leaf) feeding. But I prefer to carry out only root treatments, because even a small mistake when diluting the composition can destroy the foliage.
