Roses are heavy feeders and should be fed every six weeks for best performance. In your area they grow and flower almost all year around so they should be fed on a regular schedule. A time release or slow release nitrogen fertilizer will keep them healthy and happy. Use a specially formulated rose food in amounts and with the frequency suggested on the label to supply your roses with the basic 3 plus the micro-nutrients they crave. Best wishes with your roses.
