Answer: 
Clemson experimental suggests 1 cup of fertilizer distributed in a circle 3 feet from the base of a mature bush starting in early spring. Wait 6 weeks before applying again. Do not fertilize after June 1 . Hope this information is helpful.

Hello,
We would recommend applying 1/4 pound (about 1/2 cup) of the Ironite Plus 12-10-10 uniformly under the blueberry bush. Slowly water it in until the soil is well saturated.
Thank you

Answer: 
Hi clarence,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
A large blueberry plant should receive about 1 cup (8oz.) of Ironite Plus evenly distributed on the soil within the dripline of the plant in the spring. A second feeding in very late Spring is also advisable.
Thank you for asking,
-Travis

Answer: 
Nitrogen / Phosphorus / Potassium . N/P/K. The numbers represent the percentage per bag. Ex. A ten lb. bag of 12-10-10 would contain 1.2 lbs. of nitrogen, 1 lbs. of phosphorus, 1 lb. of potassium. The numbers always keep the order of N/P/K. Further micronutrients may be listed in trace amounts on back of package not indicated in these numbers. Happy Gardening!

Hello,
Typically the three numbers listed on the front of a bag of fertilizer are the "NPK." In the order they are printed Nitrogen (N) if the first number, followed by Phosphorous (P) and finally Potassium (K).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ironite 3 LB 12-10-10 Plant Food In our area Ironite in the 3 lb. size is very hard to find, so was very pleased to find that Home Depot has it available online, and it came in two days! Always a plus when you can get what you need in a short period of time online. Of course the product is one that most every gardener uses and trusts. Thanks Home Depot. June 17, 2014
