Caring for my Shabby Rose Garden


Hello lovelies!
I posted about my Shabby Rose Garden project and I had several people ask me
what kind of "magical" rose food I use.
I bought my rose bush at Lowe's last year,
it is a climbing rose.
I planted it on the south side of my house where there is alot of sunshine.
The rose bush was $30 (a splurge for me) along with it I purchased
Bayer Advanced Rose and Flower Care ($15) at Lowe's.
Bayer Rose care nourishes and protects against spider mites.
The first year I cut the rose back so it would stay healthy.
After it gets done blooming I plan to cut it back again.
I am only a gardening beginner, so I was
surprised by how this rose has flourished.
As always thank you ever so much for stopping by!
Good luck with your gardening!
Big squishy hugs,
Olivia

  2. Good Morning Olivia Sweetie...
    I am so tickled that you shared your rose bush find and the rose food. I love Lowe's. It is my favorite place to shop, and they have the most gorgeous flowers there. I will check out there climbers this weekend and get some of that rose food as well.

    Hope you are having a glorious day sweet friend. You are in my prayers. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  5. This product contains Imadacloprid. A systemic insecticide that works very well. Except that it kills Bees. It makes the flower poisonous. That includes the pollen and the nectar. You would think that the gov't would require a warning but they do not. Place this product on your flowers and it will be killing Bees for a full 12 months.
