Should I feed a burnet rose? It has bushed out well but only has the occasional bloom.



Is it in a container or in the ground? It wouldn't hurt to give it the occasional feed with Sulphate of Potash or tomato feed.

in the wild they thrive on poor soils but over feeding will give lots of foliage. So tom feed would be suitable.

It's in the ground in quite poor soil. I don't feed my other wild flowers which is why I wondered about this.
Thankyou Jimmy and Sbg. So a dose of tomato feed won't do any harm.

How do I say thanks?
