Question From: Northville, Michigan, United States
Q: I have 4 knockout roses, 3 bush roses, and 7 hydrangea in a bed surrounding my patio. Is there a common fertilizer I can use for all plants, or should I tailor the fertilizer to the plant. Have a soaker hose installed for watering the entire bed. One more question. I recently trimmed back one of the hydrangea to about 4 inches. My wife did not appreciate the effort ..... claims the plant will not produce this summer. Your opinion please.
Hollytone by Espoma will work well on all the plants. The roses are heavy feeders so give them a handfull once a month thru the middle of August. Need to know what variety of Hydrangeas you have. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
