Roses, glorious roses! The delicate blooms in red, pink, yellow, cream, and coral brighten up flower beds over the summer months. We love them for their bright blooms and sweet fragrance – but mostly for their romantic association. And with the month of love approaching in the new year, now’s the perfect time to get your rose garden established. In the mood for some fun in the sun?

When planting rose bushes, make sure you choose nutrient-rich, well-draining soil. Young plants need all the nourishment they can get to grow optimally and produce bountiful blooms. With this said, we recommend Pokon Potting Soil for the job. The product is a quality mixture of raw materials, including peat litter, lime and wood fibre, encouraging water retention and nutrient absorption by the plant. Pokon Potting Soil comes in 5L bags – explore our website to place an order.
If you’re looking for an alternative to Pokon Potting Soil, try Pokon Coco Growing Medium. It is 100% natural and consists of composted coconut fibre, ensuring a well-aerated and loose soil structure for speedy root growth. We recommend Pokon Coco Growing Medium for pot plants in particular, so consider using it if you want to plant your roses in planters. The product comes ready to use – all you need to do is add water!
When it comes to rose garden health, fertiliser plays an important role. Pokon Rose Fertiliser is an organic product, specially designed for rose bushes. Not only does it feed the plant instantaneously, but it improves the overall quality of the soil, providing nutrients for up to 120 days.
Pokon Rose Fertiliser is enriched with naturally occurring minerals, zeolite and algae. This organic matter increases plant resistance to disease, while promoting abundant flowering.
The fertiliser contains Magnesium oxide and Iron, enhancing the colour intensity of rose blooms.
Roses are no stranger to disease and pests. Using an effective fungicide and insecticide is imperative to the health and longevity of your rose garden. We recommend Efekto Rosecare – a ready-to-use micro-emulsion for the control of black spot, rust, powdery mildew, thrips, aphids, and red spider mite. The product comes in a 750ml bottle, and can be used every seven to ten days as required.
