Roses are just coming into bloom, all over the west coast, and it’s time to make sure they stay taken care of throughout the blooming season! Roses have a history of being fussy, sensitive and heavily dependent on specialized fertilizers and pesticides. But, we have discovered that those methods are not always necessary to have success with roses. Roses respond tremendously to our organic soil amendments and the concept of using complex soil life to feed plants and protect them against pests and disease.   Articles appearing in the publication of the American Rose Society have recommended using our OPTIMIZE (an organic humus amendment) and NOURISH-Biosol (an organic fertilizer) on all types of roses. The author, Master Rosarian and Consulting Rosarian Jack Schoultz, is a big fan of those two products for his roses. I am still working to convince him of the additional merits of MAXIMIZE! The live microbes and abundant minerals in MAXIMIZE do wonders to increase the health and beauty of any rose.   For additional rose needs, we also recommend John & Bob’s Rose & Soil Defender! This organic spray works with the Soil Food Web to stave off pests and disease and keep your roses in optimum condition throughout the year.

These photos show a beautiful rose garden in Fresno, California in mid-Spring after four applications (over two years) of OPTIMIZE, NOURISH-Biosol and MAXIMIZE, and one initial application of PENETRATE. These roses are in a beautifully structured garden and are exhibiting a very typical response when we use our system of products on roses.
