Worldwide Ecotours - 2017
2017 is truly Canada's year to celebrate. To honour Canada's 150th anniversary we are offering two delightfully different perspectives of Canada and Canadian gardens. Our Western garden tour is located in the very English city of Victoria, British Columbia; but Victoria city gardens are anything but quaint. They truly reflect the biological, historical and cultural diversity of Canada's west coast. 5000 km to the east is our Quebec garden tour, which offers a charming French perspective on Canadian gardens and history. These tours will celebrate two distinct aspects of Canada's natural and historic wonders that help to make up part of Canada's wonderful cultural heritage.

5. Rose Fertilizer Recipe Courtesy of Bernie Zaharik
- Per 1 gallon of water add:
1 Tbsp of Alaska Fish Emulsion (Peavey Mart)
1 Tbsp of Epsom salts
And for the first feeding: 1Tbsp micronized Iron (Iron Chelate)added to prevent chlorosis.
- Each rose bush gets 1/2 gallon of this solution starting in May when in full leaf, the second in June and the third in early July.
- NEVER FERTILIZE AFTER THE FIRST OF AUGUST. It encourages new weak growth and may cause winter kill.
- Roses need lots of sun and nutrients and water and must have good drainage and air circulation. If there is no rain they should have 2 gallons of water per week for healthy growth.
- Morning watering is preferable to prevent fungal diseases.
