Question About Fertilizing Under Mulch
I am in process of renewing my mulch on the roses. I have horses and lots of compost so I put this on first then follow with wood chips. Have had very good success with this. I am wondering if I could put a little Mills Magic Rose Mix around the roses before I put on the horse compost.....it is organic and though I know I dont want the roses to start making new growth, would it be a bad idea to have the fertilizer in place before I mulch?
Right now, it is 81 degrees, unseasonably warm for our area. January and 2 weeks in February are usually cold and [hopefully!] rainy. We can have cold winters but they are usually not long.....but dont want to start jumping the gun and putting out fertilizer if I shouldnt. Advice? Thanks!
