I haven't seen Rapid Grow fertilizer in years. I think it was manufactured by Chevron and they've gone on to other products. Burning bush should be pruned in spring and you can prune it back by about one-third without causing harm. I wouldn't prune them back to nearly ground level - it would be too much of a shock to the root system to lose that many leaves (they need leaves for photosynthesis).

Best wishes with your garden.
