Organic fertilizers have great value in the garden; whether you utilize only organics or choose to supplement your regular chemical-based fertilizer program, your roses will prosper. While both chemical-based and organic fertilizers may provide required nutrients, the benefits of organic fertilizers are significant.


Organic fertilizers...

  • can improve the quality of the soil by contributing organic matter.


  • contribute the micro-nutrients which contribute to strong and healthy growth


  • are an excellent way to add specific nutrients particular to a plant's needs.

Lovely plants are evidence of excellent soil structure; there is no greater gift you can give to your plants (and yourself) than the addition of compost to the soil. Compost helps sticky, clay soils drain better. Compost helps sandy soils hold moisture better. Compost adds vital nutrients to the soil, especially the secondary macronutrients and micronutrients. Compost provides a haven for earthworms and other organisms which help break down the soil. Learn more about Composting...
