Use Alfalfa Meal In Combination With Other Fertilizers?

I keep hearing that alfalfa meal is a good rose fertilizer. Several sources recommend combining it with an organic rose fertilizer, along with some composted manure. Is it safe to combine all three sources and apply to the roses at the same time? Is it safe to apply this to roses once a month? What is the additional value of using alfalfa tea instead of an alfalfa meal? It seems like the alfalfa meal would give you the advantage of slower absorption and more of time-release effect.
