Mini Rose Bush Care:   Fertilize in early spring, after last & after pruning. Use an even 10-10-10 or 12-12-12 ratio at 1/2 recommended strength every 3 weeks. If outside give more fertilizer: (photosynthesis in direct sunlight).  Use high phosphorus fertilizer 2 weeks after 1st leaf buds emerge.  Outside: 6 weeks before 1st frost, stop fertilizer & reduce water. If temp below 0, add 1-2" mulch to base.  Inside: they need a cool/cold period so they rest.  Prune: mid-winter/early spring
