Answer: Under planted roses are an attractive addition to a garden. You can under plant your roses with gerberas as they both prefer a slightly acidic soil. When under planting any plants you have to remember they will be competing for the same resources, so you need to ensure you a providing them with enough water and nutrients. You can ensure an adequate supply of nutrients using Thrive Flower and Fruit Soluble Fertiliser as well a slow release organic fertiliser like Dynamic Lifter. If you find your roses lack vigour and flower poorly then you may need to choose another companion plant
