David Austin Controlled Release Rose Food


Our new and improved controlled release rose food provides consistent and essential nutrients when your rose needs it, ensuring healthy growth and beautiful blooms while also being kinder to the environment. Requiring a feed only once a year, our improved formula automatically releases essential nutrients and trace elements when the rose needs it throughout the season.

David Austin rose food is different to traditional basic feeds that un-necessarily release nutrition when your rose doesn’t need it. Our controlled-release feed releases nutrients at the optimum time, using soil temperature and moisture levels to understand your rose’s needs. As the nutrients are taken up by the plant, this minimises environmental leaching and is therefore a much more environmentally friendly way to look after your rose.
