Hello everyone,

I finally have a garden for the first time since moving to Australia! And I have inherited some slightly neglected rose bushes from the previous tenants - they seem to be in need of a good feed but, for obvious reasons, I don't have any compost yet. I've not looked after roses since I became vegan. I've found resources online for pre-made vegan fertilisers in the States but I've not been able to find any of those brands here.

Can anyone recommend a good, vegan safe, over the counter general fertiliser that I could get at Bunnings or the local garden centre? I don't have time or the space to justify sourcing all of the base ingredients and making my own.

Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions!

At Bunnings the only things I've seen are composted sugar cane mulch and seaweed extract. Probably better than nothing but your roses might need a bit more than that?

Are you opposed to something like a slow-release inorganic fertiliser? I don't know if they're completely vegan, and not super environmental friendly but that would be the easy way to go.
