I have clay soil, lousy, doesn’t retain water. suspect alkaline. planting iceberg floribundas and boxwood around. What amendments/products do you recommend? I’m tempted because roses like 6.5 and suspect this is a bit alkaline to add small amount peat and steer manure to products.

We recommend our Dry Total Advantage Rose & flower fertilizer with our Mother Land Planting mix. This will work for both your Iceberg Roses and boxwood. Stay away from steer or chicken manures. They won’t perform like you think they should. They are very cheap sources of nitrogen. We use premium ingredients like Fish meal, Fish Bone meal, Kelp meal & Kelp flour, and all our dry fertilizers and premium soil mixes contain Trubiotics!
