  June

Roses start to go dormant and drop leaves, start planting new roses. Use slow release fertiliser Neutrong Seamungus on established and new plants. Established roses can be relocated to a new spot if they are in the wrong place or too close together. Prune well before moving & water in well with ECO-Seaweed.

  July

Start pruning roses, remove all leaves from the bush and rake up all around the rose beds lightly. Use ECO-Rose & ECO-Oil mixed together to spray on roses, also sightly on the soil around the bush to kill any fungus spores. You may want to repeat in 2 weeks time. For roses growing in large pots, re-pot every 2-3 years. Use best quality potting mix with slow release fertiliser. Root prune by a quarter as well as pruning top hard, water in well with Eco-Seaweed
