rhododendron bush feeding guide

I've just planted out a young rhododendron bush.
Once established, how often do I need to feed it during the growing season??.

Many Thanks

    If your soil is good it doesn't need feeding. Watering is more important especially mid to late summer when they form next year's flowers

    I use a seaweed liquid food especially for rhododendrons,camellias etc. Once every week or so, doesn’t hurt and may help.
