The article discusses organic and inorganic rose fertilizers. Composting, manure and other organics such as alfalfa, cottonseed and seaweed are deemed excellent fertilizers. Inorganic fertilizers, especially the granular forms, are also believed to be important in growing roses. Small, frequent feedings of organics and time-release fertilizers are required in growing healthy, exhibit-worthy roses.
