I think it simoly doesnt like being in a pot. it meeds to be in the ground tracey...not vine weevils.
it is never a solution to feed plants thaf are ailing essentially because of a lack of wateer.....that's the cause of your problems. that rootball is not holding enough moisture. Bonemeal will simply burn those roots right now.
before planting put the rootball in a bucket of water for a couple of hours. tease out any roots growing around the rootball and gently apread them out. dig a generous planting hole and mix dried manure and compost with a little organic granular fertiliser with the soil. backfill and make a mound surrounding the plant and fill with water. let it drain and repeat. do this 3 or 4 times.
Later remove the mounded soil around the rootball and mulch with compost
dont prune anything yet except for any dead twigs
