I have bottle brush plant in a large pot-about 30-gallons. It's about 2 years old-not doing real good. What is the best fertilizer to feed it?

Bottlebrush can be fed in the spring. Since yours is in a container I'd suggest using a water soluable fertilizer or a time release granular such as Osmocote so you don't accidentally burn the roots. Miracle Gro or Peter's are both really good water soluable fertilizers. Dilute according to package directions. Best wishes with your bottlebrush.
