Rose Start Up Tonic

I got this from my Jerry Baker gardening book. I have used this tonic with great results. Here is his unique tonic:

  • 1 Tbsp. liquid dish soap
  • 1 Tbsp. hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 Tbsp. whiskey
  • 1 tsp. vitamin B plant starter
Mix all ingredients in 1/2 gallon of warm tea, then pour around the root zone
of each plant.

I have added a picture of the book and my roses.
