Many plants need additional nutrients to supplement what your soil provides. Roses in particular are what many green thumbs consider, “heavy feeders.” This means that they demand more nutrients than some of your other garden variety flowers.
There are three key nutrients plant health is based on: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). You’ll find these three ingredients on most any fertilizer packaging accompanied by percentages. Different zones and soils will require different levels of each of these nutrients. Ask your Marcum’s associate today about the proper fertilizer for your shrubs or roses.
ROOT STIMULATORS ARE A SHRUB’S BEST FRIEND
Root stimulators give plants the necessary nutrients to overcome shock and can help plants begin developing a strong root system. There are many different root stimulators on the market, and even some DIY root stimulator recipes. Talk to a Marcum’s associate at our Oklahoma City or Goldsby locations about root stimulators before taking your new plants home.
Plant disease should not be taken lightly. Different plant species fall victim to different diseases, and if noticed in time, plants can often be saved. Talk to a member of the Marcum’s team about how best to combat plant disease.
