standard rose Peace

This rose tree had just about gone past its sell by date last year after i had had it for approx 25yrs, but this is the result after Mickc told me to use epsonsalts, as it did so well with it, i kept feeding it about every 2wks with it, so next spring it will be feed again with it all summer.

I've never heard of giving roses Epsom salts, that's a new one on me ............ What quantity did you use please ?

Gorgeous photo. I too buy a big bag of epsom salts & doctor them. They also get baking soda. Lovely, lovely rose.

Stripes i use a flat tablespoon in a full watering can, and i pour some of it in a spray bottle and spray the leaves aswell, hope i've helped you, Doon thanks for another tip, all i use baking powder for is to clean fridge with.

Gee years ago i got a fridge from electricboard they use to have shops on the high streets, and in the leaflet on how to clean the fridge, thats what it said so i just mix about a teaspoon in a bowl of water, its suppose to keep your fridge smelling sweet, and leaves it shinining.
