I have heard time and time again on anecdotal evidence that coffee grounds are good for roses. I read that its a fertilizer, a compost, and an insecticide. I found this LINK on the web if you want to read more.
|Here is why I am bringing this up. I have a "mystery rose" that looks like it is growing out of a tree. I think I have deduced that it isn't a "rose tree" but canes that have hardened and mossed over. Not sure what to do but this is what I did.|
I dug a whole about four times the size of the pot. Put mushroom compost, top soil, a sprinkle of rose 2 in 1 care (Bayer), coffee grounds, and mixed it up. A pot of water with a tbsp of epsom salt in it. Will this work? No idea...so don't try it unless someone else says it. I think I need to do more to the canes , at least this is what this WEBSITE reads. So it's a wait and see.
