    You can use any of the many types of rose fertilizer, granular or liquid. Just follow the instructions on the box or bottle. Better to use less than too much fertilizer. Do some reading on this site since it has a few good fertilizer articles.

    right on umar! cow manure really does the trick. It's actually better that other rose fertilizers that can sometimes be expensive. and don't worry about the smell, when it's all dry, it's not that bad.

    Commercial growers use a slow release fertilizer that lasts all season long. Osmocote 14-14-14 is a good one and releases a little nutrient every time you water.
