Stop feeding your roses now and resume in the spring when new growth begins. You can use a general purpose 10-10-10 fertilizer or you can use a specialized rose food such as Bayer Advanced? Triple Action Rose Food Granules, which lasts for about 3 months and provides a continual supply of nutrients. Prune your roses in January or February to prepare them for new growth in March or April. Most importantly, enjoy your roses!
