Hi,

I have two questions:

1.
I live in Paraparaumu and have very sandy soil. I had a successful year last year with growing Iceberg standard roses, but found to keep them going throughout the season had to keep feeding. Is there something I can do to assist the roses for the coming season now?

2.
Is there a product I can use to improve the soil for my other plants for the coming season, and help retain some moisture in the soil over summer?

Thanks
Sue

Hi Sue,
Because of the sandy soil, the fertiliser tends to leach quite quickly. You can help this long term by trying to improve the soil using quality compost or mulch and/or garden mix. Working this into the top layer of the soil, over time this will improve the soil quality and its water and fertiliser holding capacity. You can also use a product called Soil Wetter by Yates as well as SaturAid, both these products will help retain moisture. A combination of the above will give you the best results.
Thanks, the Palmers team
