Q.Roses Where Evergreen Tams Were

Zone Blackfoot, Idaho | Anonymous added on May 20, 2021 | Answered

Can I plant roses in the space where evergreen tams have grown for 30+ years and now been removed? I would think the acidic nature of the tam needles would require addition of a soil neutralizer. Limestone?

I would just amend the soils with some bagged garden soil for roses. The amending the soils with such bagged soil will likely reduce the acidic nature, even though roses do like a bit acidic soils bringing it down some would be the prudent thing to do. When the rosebushes are planted, water them in with some water that has both a product called Super Thrive and a Root stimulator product of choice in it. Water them with a fresh batch of such water mix the next 5 to 6 times they need watering. That should get them all the boost they need to be successful.
