I have been using Holly Tone Plant Food for about 2 years now. It was recommended by a manager at one of my local nurseries to help bring some spring flush to several of the bushes surrounding the foundation of my house. It did great last year after a very rough winter, and I will use it again this year.
It was recommended that I use about a cup every spring and fall. I did that last year with wonderful success. So when I saw the 8lb. bag available at The Home Depot, I grabbed it immediately. I will definitely recommend it to any friend or family member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MeCzech The best plant food of this kind I know.
I am enjoying about 30 bushes of rhododendrons and azaleas on my property. Years ago I started with just few inches tall plants which after two decades grew into large bushes. The growth like that requires good nutrients and acid soil. Holy Tone Plant Food takes care about both of them. When plants were smaller, I used Holly tone slightly digging it into the ground above roots. Because I don't not shape or trim my plants soon plants grew into the thick brush. I am still using Holly Tone Plant food, I just toss it over plants just before the rain, or if no rain, I hose spray plants to wash off eventual fertilizer dust on plants. For more details about use and ingredients see pic 1-4.
What is nice on this fertilizer besides being organic, that the granule does not melt in the water quickly, so plants are benefited with nutrients gradually for longer time. Now I use this fertilizer pretty generously only at spring time. The bloom every year is rewarding. Besides azaleas and rhododendrons I use this plant food for few hydrangeas, magnolia tree, potted blueberries and other acid soil loving plants. All of them are doing great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alleymca Excellent Organic garden Food!
The Espoma Organic Hollytone Evergreen & Azelia Food for organic gardening is of ecellent quality. I used it on the pictured plant. Within just one week I saw healthy new growth and blooms. As it is a slow release fertilizer that breaks down gradually it has a long lasting effect. This organic plant food also smells great and is easy to apply. I highly recommend it for all acid loving plants.

We put holly bushes worth more than $1,000 around our back porch. The landscape company did a nice job of planting them, but never said anything about soil conditions or fertilizer. The plants did OK the first year but struggled coming out of a bad winter/wet spring: I was trimming too many dead branches, fungal leaves and not seeing much new growth. The guy in the Garden Dept suggested Holly Tone...and the package instructions specified heavier application in thickly-mulched beds. I've been dumping Holly Tone twice each year and the plants are looking very strong: lots of buds, lots of new growth.

Although I only used this product this past fall, I think it makes a lot of difference for healthier trees, greener leaves and much better growth of the plant. so I am waiting for the spring to feed again and watch for big results.
From now on, I believe I will be using it to feed my tree twice a year and, especially in spring, it normally shoots out lots of new growth and flowers. Great organic product for acid loving plants.
Application is simple, it's an organic product, it quickly works its way into the soil, and my garden is beautiful.

Working on my little garden and I am not the most adept this, but I am not afraid to use a good mix or wide combination of plant foods , especially if there is a chance for something that is more natural and with less chemical additives.I regularly till my garden up before the season and I have no problem using the entire bag. This year will be more about flowers and less vegetables. This is supposed to be good for acid loving plants and I got my fingers crossed, this looks like it'll do the trick.

This fertilizer is good for all plants AND trees. It is especially good for acid loving plants such as azaleas. I've been using this fertilizer for years with great results. It is organic and won't burn. It breaks down slowly and feeds for a long time. I just apply it under my mulch and water in. I have also used their Rose-Tone fertilizer which is also very good.
