I have been told that tomorite is a good all round fertilizer for my roses, hydrangea and Escallonia shrubbery, but how often should I apply it throughout the growing season?

    It's not what you'd all an 'all round' fertiliser ... it's high in potash which encourages flowering and fruiting, but using just that will result in an imbalance ... a good all around slow release organic fertiliser for most plants is Fish, Blood and Bone.

    I echo Dove's thoughts, use the tomorite or something similar when the flowers start but FBB is a good fertilizer to put on the borders now.
