soil amendments and planting soil

12 years ago

I was wondering if I could get some advice on soil amendments and planting soil . I currently mix my own soil for planting since it is soooo very sandy here in Tampa.

This is what I do:

In a wheelbarrow, 1 bag topsoil, 1 bag black cow, and an equal part peat moss, with two large scoops of Espoma Rose Tone.

This is what I use to plant new roses, in about a 5 gallon equivalent hole for a 3 gallon rose. If there is anything I should add or subtract to this mix for healthier initial rose starts, I would love to know.

Also, what should I use for annual amendments, when and what method of application?
