Deciduous and Evergreens

Warmer climates (8, 9, 10, and 11) can fertilize any plants and trees in winter because they are still growing actively at the root level. This is also a great time to plant in these warm climates. Slow release fertilizers with low amounts of nitrogen can be used on newly planted trees to encourage root growth and quicker establishment. It can also be used on established plants providing nutrients for growth and health.

Avoiding large amounts of nitrogen like stated in the beginning of this newsletter is important.

When we feed our plants in winter we are feeding the roots which still often continue to grow even in winter. This makes our trees and plants stronger, sturdier, and more durable. These healthy, strong plants tend to emerge from dormancy faster and grow quicker than unfertilized plants.  We recommend Organic slow release types of fertilizer with micronutrients and beneficial bacteria.
