Hello All, I've just bought my first house (yay!) and finally gotten my own garden to play around with (and hopefully not destroy) . While the garden is in a decent condition with a few fruit trees (plum, pear, apple) and a Walnut tree and an assortment of flowers, I'd like to give my own touches and plant some of my own favorite plants.
I recently got carried away and bought 3 roses to plant near the back wall of the garden (a 'Compassion', 'Dans de feu' and an 'Aloha'). I did not have bonemeal with me so planted without it. Will this ensure a healthy plant and what else can I do? I did the same for a few Dahlia bulbs which I planted at the borders. I've now ordered bonemeal.
Thank you so much for your help in advance and looking forward to discussing more with you all and applying your techniques to my garden.
