If in the ground does not need feeding where you live Helen, just a mulch of composted bark or similar.

It,s in a large pot so what would be best please
I had one in the ground for years MG and it died on me this year for no apparent reason so decided to try this one in a pot but I,m not sure if it,s wise or not

Much better to have your rhodo in the ground Helen... at least that is my opinion and you have the right growing conditions for.
