Fertilizing Trees and Shrubs
May 14, 2015
While most people fertilize only their lawn, other plants around the landscape need to be fertilized as well – especially trees and shrubs. It is especially important to fertilize these two types of foliage because they are susceptible to diseases and damage as well, and need the right soil environment to thrive.
Why Fertilize Trees and Shrubs?
While it is true that many trees and shrubs can grow just fine without fertilizing them, there are a great many that could use an extra boost to grow taller or stronger. When a tree or shrub is not in its natural environment, it may need a boost in nutrients to grow to its natural heights and strengths. If you believe you have trees or shrubs that are not growing the way that they should, this may be a reason to fertilize.
Healthy plants are also less susceptible to disease and can withstand damage. The more nutrients your plants receive, the healthier they will grow and the more attractive they will be.
Choosing a Fertilizer for Your Trees and Shrubs
Of course, if you’re thinking of fertilizing trees and shrubs, you’re adding a layer of complexity to the fertilization process. You’ll need to make sure that you choose the right fertilizer to help these plants grow. You’ll also want to fertilize during the right time of year for those plants, and make sure that you’re placing them in the ground at the right time.
Maintaining that Fertilization
Finally, if you don’t plan on fertilizing yourself, it’s a good idea to work with a company that you can trust. You’ll be working with that fertilizer company for years, and so finding the right one for developing that relationship with is important.
