These roses were never over 14"-16" tall until this
I can hardly wait for 1999 so I can use EnviroMax on all of my roses. Not knowing how the roses would behave, I used EnviroMax on only 14 plants this year. These plants were fed EnviroMax only twice - one ounce per gallon - one gallon per plant. All of my roses did well this year, but the plants treated with EnviroMax had more foliage, outstanding blooms with more substance, more blooms and great color. I had less blackspot, less mildew, and less problems with insects on the treated plants. There were two small spider mite problems on other rose beds. The plants treated with EnviroMax had no spider mite problem. I sprayed Nova twice on the untreated beds for mildew. I did not spray anything on the plants treated with EnviroMax.
I usually start roses in the spring with two applications of either Rapidgro, Fish Emulsion, or Urea (45-0-0). Then I use granular fertilizer monthly, and also add Miracle-Gro Roses when spraying. (This year, on the roses treated with the EnviroMax, I did not use any fertilizer.) In 1999 I will feed the first of the month with Bradfield Plus, and in between I will alternate using EnviroMax or PlantMaster, mixed with some EnviroLife.
