    Fertilizers and Soil Additives

Fertilizers and soil amendments are a wide array of materials that can be added to soils to improve plant growth. These can be organic such as bone meal, alfalfa meal, etc. or inorganic such as a 12-24-12 fertilizer. Many serve both purposes as fertilizers and soil amendments.

Our March speaker, Dr. Larry Unruh, will provide you with the information to make a wise decision on those products that will address the need for your rose beds.

Dr. Larry Unruh is well qualified to tell rose growers their best approach for success. He has degrees in both soil fertility and soil chemistry. Dr. Unruh is the Technical Director of American Plant Food Corporation located in Galena Park, Texas.
