Most people can identify roses from other flowers, but not all can grow and take care of them. Pruning methods, vine training and nutrients must be considered when taking care of these aromatic flowers. If you want to save a little money, you can make a few fertilizers at home that are beneficial to the plant and easy on the wallet. These will help keep the leaves green and blooms vibrant.
Coffee
Brew a pot of regular-strength coffee.
Pour the coffee into a watering can.
Add four pots of cool water to the watering can and stir it all together.
Pour the mix around the base of rose plants.
Vinegar Mix
Mix the following together in a small bowl: 1 tsp. of kelp extract, 2 tsp. of fish fertilizer, 1 tbsp. of Epsom salt, 2 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar and 2 tbsp. of molasses. Stir the mix until it is combined.
Pour the mix into a container and add 3 cups of water. Stir this all together. This is your concentrate mix.
Add the concentrate to a large 2-gallon container when you are ready to use it; fill the rest of container with water. Use this around your roses.
Fish Water
Pour the water out of the fish tank and into a bucket, when it is time to clean the tank. If you have let tank water sit too long without maintenance, or had filter issues, and the water is contaminated with algae, don't use it on your plants. However, if it's just a normal water change, the nitrogen in the old water will be good for the plants.
Pour the water from the bucket into a watering can with a strainer over the top. This will catch any debris or small rocks from the tank that might have escaped.
Pour the nitrogen-rich water around the rose bushes when they need a drink.
