    Arborvitae & Boxwood are evergreens that do not require acid soils.  We recommend Plant-tone for these.

    When To Use:

    • Feed in the Spring and late Fall at half the Spring rate.
    • Blooming evergreens like azaleas and rhododendron are best fed in the spring at the first hint of bloom color.
    • Berry crops should be fed twice; early spring and late spring (45-60 days apart).
    • Never apply fertilizer to frozen soils.

    How To Apply:

    • For Shrubs: Sprinkle the recommended amount around the drip line and water thoroughly.  If the area is mulched either temporarily remove the mulch and feed or double the rate on top of the mulch.

    • For Trees: Dig 3″ wide holes around the drip line that are 12-18″ deep & 2-3′ apart Divide the Holly-tone evenly and pour into the holes.  Backfill the holes with soil and water thoroughly.
