How often to feed a rose in container? This is 'Iceberg'. I have had it for many years in a (small) 16" pot, but this year is in a bigger pot and doing very well. It is covered in buds and just starting to flower. I understand roses normally need feeding a powdered feed twice per year when they are growing in the ground, first in April, then later in June. But am I right that when grown in pots they should be fed more frequently? I gave my Iceberg its first feed in April. What ought I to do next? How ought I to feed it hereafter this year? Advice appreciated.
