My dear which international standards are you talking about? is there any?
My knowledge is based on what I found at various internet sites AND THEY ALL DO NOT AGREE WITH EACH OTHER.
The American Rose Society considers NPK 6-12-6 as balanced rose food.
Know I feel it does not matter what you feed them, the plants are selective in absorbing elements according to their requirement.

Sir, as you have seen that i am experimenting with the roses.. the recipe which i found while searching the professional rose cultivation techniques was this one and it proved to be excellent in my experience.. the use of high phosphate limits many cations to get precipitated in our alkaline soils and roses dont need high phosphate at all...
