This is our Queen Elizabeth rose bush in April. This plant has been set since August of 2006. Its typical size for the past three years has been about 30-45 inches in height, and approximately 10 blooms would be cut from this plant each year.
The day this picture was taken, this plant was treated with the Garden Vigor foliar program mixture: Emerald Mist and MaxGrow. It was also treated with Garden Vigor's Sulf-O-Cal and the soil application mixture around the base (MaxGrow and VermActant) and watered in.
The foliar program has been administered bi-monthly, which is less than the possible number of applications. The foliar mixture may be applied every 7-10 days, while we misted only every two weeks. The soil application was also applied every three weeks following the recommended frequency of every 21-28 days.
