Nutrients that roses need to grow

Like most plants, roses need specific types of nutrients in their ‘diet’. These nutrients ensure healthy growth during the dormant and blooming periods of life.

There are three main nutrients that roses need: nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). These give the rose an all-around boost of supplements for excellent plant health.

Nitrogen helps with the roots and stem of the roses. This nutrient promotes healthy growth of these parts and helps maintain a firm base for the rose. A strong stem means a strong plant.

Phosphorus serves an equally important purpose. It takes care of the roots of the roses, ensuring they’re well enough to absorb nutrients from the soil. Good roots are the key to healthy roses.

Finally, potassium helps in almost all areas of the plant. With potassium in the plant’s ‘diet’, disease from harmful bacteria is less likely to occur. Potassium also produces vibrant colors in both the stems and blooms of roses.

Other nutrients roses benefit from are magnesium, sulfur, copper, iron, and manganese. With consistent use, these nutrients extend plant life and keep your roses thriving. Even if you know which nutrients you need, finding the perfect blend can be challenging. -ardenhelpful
