I bought this 3 in 1 product from Bayer and I think I over did it on my indoor parade roses. [Razz] a couple of days after using this stuff,most of the leaves are dead. [Eek!] a couple of leaves are still alive. [thinker] if I do some"spring pruning" can I save my beautiful roses?(stems look fine)

run water through the plant for about 30 minutes to wash the excess fertilizer out. that'll fix you up and save the living leaves.

thank you so much,Jiffymouse. I would hate to lose the entire plant. and next time Ill be sure to just use a very little bit. [angel]

well, when it comes to feeding your plants, when it doubt cut the amount you "think" is right in half or even only use a quarter. it is much easier to add more than it is to wash it out, although, washing it out does work.
