Roses in containers are susceptible to root burn if you use granular fertilizers so either use time release fertilizers such as Osmocoat and apply only once a year, or feed with a half strength dilution of a water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro. With this product you'll want to feed every 2-3 weeks during the growing season. Best wishes with your roses.
