Two-part fertilizing question

16 years ago

I just came across this instruction on Rose Magazine's website:

NEVER fertilize a new rose bush with anything other than bonemeal.

How old does the rose have to be before that edict is lifted? I'm sure I used Rosetone on my newly-planted roses in the past.

Also, is Rosetone considered a fertilizer, or do you use it in addition to fertilizer? What about alfalfa meal?

Thanks! I wanna do right by my new roses.
