Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Do you want a small recipe for a big rose boost? Take a large outdoor garbage can filled with water and mix in 10 to 16 cups of alfalfa pellets or meal. Cover and let brew for 5 days to a week. When you open the lid, plug your nose because you will have a nasty looking and smelling tea that is like a mega espresso to roses. During growth, feed each rose a gallon of this concoction every so often and you will be thrilled with the results!
