Store SKU # 798940

Tree experts recommend watering and fertilizing below the soil’s surface, where most of the active tree roots grow. The Ross Root Feeder’s deep feeding system is specially designed to do exactly that. Simply connect a garden hose to the Root Feeder and insert the feed tube into the soil around the drip line of a tree.

  • Water flows through a chamber filled with fertilizer, through a feed tube right to the tree’s roots
  • Perfect for drought weather, there is no runoff and wasted water, just healthy, beautiful trees all season
  • Saves water perfect for drought
  • Easy to use no mixing or measuring

Answer: 
I imagine if you poured some ironite into the chamber you could use it, the chamber is just meant to be there to dissolve the tablets that you use, and the tablets are there out of convenience for the consumer. Anything dis-solvable will fit into the chamber, just be careful not to overfill.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Helped out my oak trees Fairly simple to use, a bit difficult to get to of the fertilizer tablets into the chamber, but once you do, it is fairly simple to get into the ground and deep root feed the trees. April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1200D Ross deep root feeder I used it 3 times, on the 4th time, the valve wouldn't turn on, very cheep valve. When it did work, it worked great for what it was supposed to do. I am going to look for one with a metal handle and valve. The hose connection pulled out also when I disconnected the hose. Junk April 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Root feeding at its best Retired an old unit and new works great. Multiple feed cartridges available. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I have a problem with roots coming to the surface. I am so glad to hear about this product. I have used it a little but since we have rain now, it will be in the spring before I actually feed the trees. I know this is going to help as I have had landscaping specialist tell me it does work. October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value, versatile. . Very versatile product. Can be used to root feed or deep water. A longer probe would be nice, and die cast metal handles would be a definite plus. Built in on/off water control is perfect for regulating water flow. It is very usable as is. My young maple trees are very grateful.. September 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good prouct In arid climates it is important to get the water to the roots! September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This is the most underrated lawn and gardening product I have ever had. I was so glad to be able to find it online at Home Depot at a reasonable price. I am just sorry that I didn't have the opportunity to use my military discount. August 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by root feeder This is my third root feeder. While I have been very happy with this product, I do wish they would last more than five years, but in the world of plastic parts, I guess I can not complain very much. It is an excellent way to water plants, getting to the roots quickly without any waste of evaporation. A professional gardener recommended this method to me, stating that the roots will grow down toward the water verses up to the top if you surface water. Made sense to me and have been doing it for 15 years with excellent results. I have used other types, but they clog and I never know if the water is running or not. This product has a window that allows me to make sure the post is not clogged and the water is running. Four stars because the plastic top eventually leaks, but overall great product. July 7, 2015
