I'm a compost tea guy, but this year I was short on time so I though what the heck. I was scared at first because I had heard of burning and ineffectiveness. I wanted it to work-needed it to work- so I read some helpful blogs, and read the directions. This stuff works and I say this as a well experienced gardener who was pessimistic about the prospects of fertilizer spikes.
A few pointers:
If plant is planted below the grade kind of like a bowl and the soil actually acts like a bowl holding the water in, spike outside the bowl because ammonia water will burn the root ball. If above grade and the water sheds off go closer in. Never go next to the base. Know your plant. Some plants are capable of fixing Nitrogen so spikes don't hurt. Some don't fix Nitrogen and need an acid present. Anyway good luck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SkyScot Product easy to use and seems to work well
I have used this product a few times with good results. It is easy to put into the ground as long as the ground isn't bone dry. I have watered the areas before putting it into the ground.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Precious4 they suck
It may be that we have clay soil but they were impossible to get in the ground. I even soaked the ground but nothing worked. I would not recommend these to anyone from my experience. I will go looking for something I can spray on them occasionally. It will most likely be a Miracle Gro product as I have had good luck with everything I have bought up to these annoying stakes. Hopefully I can return the unused box. I threw 1/2 of the first box away. Tired of fighting with them.

Used these on Cape Cod and they really make a difference in tree growth in sandy soil. Trees are much greener and vigorous

I planted a row of willows, used Miracle-Gro tree & shrub fertilizer spikes on half of them. The ones that got Miracle-Gro are twice the size and width of the ones that didn't get the spikes. This year, all my trees are getting them. For less than a dollar, you can visibly see the difference and measure the benefits. If you love and appreciate your trees and shrubs, give them Miracle-Gro.

Love the product... Use it twice a year around my non native trees... They exploded in growth last spring... Again, I would love to upload a photo but will not allow me to.
