Dear Izhar Sb.
Nice work but I want to know what is the problem with Karachi soil why Rose not perform well in our soils I live in Gulshan maymmar and just 120 km away in Hyderabad roses performing great. And I am now in search of this answer I again make 4 pots plant roses in them check pH of soil it's around 7 plus I use pH kit which is not precise I also check soil with acetic acid and it fuzzes sign of solid calcium carbonate or might be potassium chloride any thing which is on base side so I start fertilizing with few drops of sulfuric acid and things started change stunned growth took speed with in 4 days then I apply Epsom salt+ kno3+ iron sulfate + Di calcium phosphate and to convert soil pH I am using ammonium sulfate but now speed of growth get again retarded pest attack countered by abamectin now black spots, but still I want answer what's wrong with our soil if this time I failed I will try your soil less medium

izhar Bhai , One thing I need to ask, in Puspanjali recipe 20 gm of micornutrients (what are they actually and where to get them)
One More the chemicals they are using, are they used on the roses planted in soil or as updated by your soil less medium. more to clarify my query is there any way we get such growth in roses potted with soil.
I don't think so its time to start this now but planning to do it in future.
What best we can get in Soil Medium in potted Roses.

Micronutrients are available in liquid form in new sabzimandi, UDL sells by the name of "Utah" in granular form..

In soil good growth can be achieved, use water soluble NPK 20:20:20... 2 gram per litre water twice weekly, spray pesticide every 10-15 days whether you see pests or not.. sunlight for 6 hours minimum..check this pic of rose bush in pot with soil..

I have grown roses in cocopeat+old manure( dipped for a week in water)+bonemeal. Which fertilisers or nutrients should I use now? I have epsom salt, Iron sulphate, bonemeal, npk 17:17:17, urea, potash.

I also have grown roses in soil+manure mix in pots. So which of the above mentioned nutrients shd I use?
