Answer: Dear Vanessa,

Regarding the use of azalea fertiliser on your roses, there is no need to worry. It will have no adverse affects on your roses. There may be a slightly higher percentage of potassium in the rose fertiliser compared to the azalea fertiliser but as long as you apply the fertiliser in spring when new growth appears and then again in late summer/autumn, your plants will benefit from the nutrients in either of these fertilisers. If you like, you can purchase a product called Sulfate of Potash and apply this to your roses on a monthly basis during the growing period. This will improve the quantity and quality of your
roses.
