For brilliant, flourishing blossoms and lush, green foliage. Ideal for heather, camellias, hydrangeas and other acid-loving plants.

Formulating and producing high quality fertilizers is both an art and a very exacting science. In simple terms, most fertilizers are comprised of three primary elements - nitrogen, phosphorus and potash - which are referred to in the name of the product.... such as the familiar All Purpose '6-8-6' (6% nitrogen, 8% phosphorus, 6% potash).

Nitrogen is responsible for the energy-making process or chlorophyll cycle - i.e., the "green" in the plant. Phosphorus is the nutrient that promotes a strong root system and is necessary to set fruit and buds for blossoms. Potash is required for disease resistance and winter hardiness.

FEATURES:

 

  • Excellent nourishment for maintaining the low pH levels required by acid-loving plants.
  • A balanced formulation designed specifically for rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, heather and other acid-loving plants to ensure optimum flowering.
  • Contains 20% organic matter and 34% slow release nitrogen for even, sustained feeding.
  •  

    WHEN TO USE:

     

  • Fertilize early in spring before blossoms appear.
  • Repeat monthly throughout the growing season, with the last application immediately after blooming.
  •  

    NOTE:

    For new plants or bushes, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, and refill below and around the plant with peat moss or soil conditioner. Be sure to plant with the top of the root ball slightly above soil level. Firm peat moss around the roots, cover with soil and water well.
