    I have quite a large amount of flower beds to fertilize with shrubs, roses, & annuals and I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good slow release fertilizer would be for the various types of plants I mentioned above especially the annuals.

    BTW - I figure I will have to use a couple of different types for the as each type probably will benefit from attention being paid to its specific needs. So feel free to such a couple of different types.

    Lesco's triple 14. It contains all the micros, as well..unlike stuff you buy at the stores.

    I like the Scott's Osmocote product. I don't buy the retail stuff, I get mine in a 50 lb bag from a hort. supply company. You can get varying release rates from 2 months to 12 months.

    We use the osmicote product as our base, We also use a water soluble high phos product with lots of micro's.
