Product Overview

Feed acid-loving plants twice yearly - Spring and Fall. Use half the recommended rate in the Fall application. If the area to be fed is mulched, it is preferable to remove the mulch, feed and then restore the mulch on top of the plant food. If this is not possible, double all recommended feeding rates. For new plantings: Dig hole larger than root of plant so that roots can spread naturally. Remove 1/2 of the soil and replace it with compost, peat moss or humus. Mix 1 cup of Holly-tone into amended soil. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same depth it was previously growing (use soil mark on the trunk as a guide). Fill the hole halfway with amended soil. Pack the soil firmly, soak it with water, and allow it to settle. Finish filling hole leaving the top 2 in. loose for easy absorption of water. Make slight depression around the plant to help hold water. Add mulch to help conserve water, slow down evaporation, and control weeds. Keep well watered until plant is established. Note: Azaleas, Rhododendrons and Laurel are shallow rooted plants. Keep them mulched and well watered in dry weather. Do not cultivate near them as surface roots may be cut and the plant damaged.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is it a good fertilizer for viburnam bushes?

Asked by: Vince
Holy tone is fertilizer for plants loving acid soil, like azaleas and rhododendrons. I use it also for blueberry bushes. Viburnum belongs to bushes loving mildly acid soil. Unless your present soil is not for any reason acidic, then Holy tone is good fertilizer for your viburnum. From scientific point of view it is not probably the optimal fertilizer, but in general it's good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holly Tone Plant Food This product is plant specific to give each and every plant that you might have the needed nourishment that your plants need.

I applied Holly-tone last year and my azalea looked better and produced more blooms than it had in the past five plus years. My holly tree looked better as well. I just reapplied it this year to my azalea and hollies.
