Question details

My roses may need food, but I want to keep it organic and natural. would rather not use fake chemicals on them. My squash and cucumbers are drying up and yellow what can we do? thanks

The most likely thing that causes plants to show yellow leaves is nitrogen shortage. The best thing i have found for instant greening is pelleted chicken poo. Chuck a handfull of pellets into a bucket of water, leave overnight and pour it round the problem plant. I find it great for those tomato plants that are left in there pots just a little too long before planting out. The only drawback is that it is rather smelly. Don,t try to green up the lawn just before you have a garden party or your loved one may not be talking to you for a while. The best long term solution is soil improvement by digging in as much well rotted compost as you can.  
Years ago and elder taught me to take a hand full of epston salts and put them in a gallon or two of plain water, mix well and water the rose bushes with this. Worked like a charm at getting rid of the yellow leaves and made the bushes bounce back to great health.
