I have a bottle but have lost the instructions and need to put it on my roses ASAP. I looked on their website but didn't find instructions. I can't just go to a store here as no one carries it.


I just need to know how much to put in a gallon of water for roses.

TIA

Google "Aspirin for Roses." You will find it there. I'm not sure I can post the link here so I will DM the address to you.

If you have the Bayer Advanced All in one Rose and Flower care concentrate bottle here are the measurements.

Roses: 4 TBSP in 1 quart of water for one rose plant.

Flowerbeds: 4 TBSP in 2 gallons of water treats 12 square feet

Azaleas, camellias, rhodedendrons and other shrubs: 2 TBS in 1 quart of water per foot of plant height.

Be sure to shake bottle well before use. To apply to single plant, slowly pour as close to the base of the plant as possible being careful not to get it on the leaves. For flowerbeds, sprinkle over the tops of the plants and cover the entire area. NOTE, the flowerbed solution is dilluted with more water to ensure safety to plant leaves.

HTH!

Thanks WyoQ.. that is what I needed. I have the bottle but lost the booklet that was on the bottle.

TrudyRose..

My roses are being eaten by june bugs. We have had such crazy weather here..rained like crazy for months and now it is bone dry. The june bugs are eating all my fruit, the plums and the few peaches I have left
My peaches got ripe before they got big enough to eat

I get killed by Japaneese Beetles starting in July.. I use this:Bayer Advanced ™ Dual Action Rose & Flower Insect Killer Ready-To-Use
You have to keep the roses really well watered and then use this spray. It has an ingredient that kills everything..it is $$ but it lasts at least a week.. I just love going out and seeing all the dead bugs
When it is really dry here..(this year it has rained almost every day).. but I loosen up the soil around the base and then make kind of a basin around each plant.. that way the water gets in and stays there.
Of course this spray is just for the roses.. not for the fruit trees... Good Luck
