Soil Conditioning 

For best results, place 15-20cm of Daltons Rose & Flower Mix on your garden and dig to a depth of approximately 30cm. This should be done annually before planting if possible. 

Planter Mix

Dig a hole to twice the size of the root ball and half fill with Daltons Rose & Flower Mix. Gently place plant in hole so it is at correct level and fill up with Daltons Rose & Flower Mix, gently firming around the plant.

In Planter Boxes

Daltons Rose & Flower Mix can be used in large planter boxes or big containers. The mix needs to be at a minimum depth of around 30cm. However, for small containers or pots use Daltons Potting Mix or Daltons Tub Mix. 

Mulch

Spread Daltons Rose & Flower Mix to a depth of 5cm on existing rose beds to help prevent weeds germinating from the soil below, to retain moisture and to help keep an even soil temperature.

For additional feeding or fertiliser top-up use Daltons Controlled Release Fertiliser.
