Fertilizing Trees and Shrubs
Fertilizing trees and shrubs is an important step in maintaining their health and promoting vigorous growth. While these plants are relatively low-maintenance, providing them with the right nutrients at the right time can help them thrive and withstand environmental stress.
It’s best to fertilize your trees and shrubs twice a year: once in the spring and once in the fall. In the spring, fertilize just as the new growth is beginning, and in the fall, fertilize after the leaves have fallen.
It’s important to choose the right fertilizer for your plants. Different plants have different nutrient needs, so contact us, and we can help to determine the best type of fertilizer to use.
Finally, don’t fertilize newly planted trees and shrubs until they have been in the ground for at least one year. The plants need time to establish themselves and develop a strong root system before they can benefit from fertilization. Once they’ve had time to settle in, you can start fertilizing them to promote healthy growth and vitality.
