Product Overview

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.

Answer: 
The key is to find out how much of the insecticide you need (concentrate) then figure out how long it takes to get the amount of H2O necessary to dilute the insecticide through the feeder. (1 oz per gallon, etc) After that it should be easy. Of course most of the water to dilute the concentrate is to help it penetrate the ground so you could probably use less H2O. I put a portion of the insecticide into Read More

I put a portion of the insecticide into the feeder with some food coloring then "feed" as normal. When the food coloring is gone from the feeder I give it a 10-15 count before moving to another area Read Less

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best garden tool I ever bought! There is nothing negative to say about this tool. Rain or watering trees and shrubs never quite get to the roots and you waste a lot of water. With the root feeder water goes straight to the root system with just 20 min of watering! June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best way to fertilize I had one of these feeders for over 25 years and it finally broke. Having used one for that long I purchased this new one and am 100% pleased. I expected lessor quality than the old one, but it is built the same. On to the next 25. By far the best way to get fertilizer and just deep watering for my trees and shrubs. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, a little expensive though I've used this about 1 month and fertilized 10+ trees. Overall a decent product but a little pricey for what you get. The fertilizer refills are also a little on the pricey side. I have fairly "loose" soil so I haven't had any problems pushing this into the ground but I can see how pushing through packed soil would break this product. The key is to go slowly and not jam or jerk it into the ground. May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK Could not find the fertilizer cartridges replacement at home depot May 31, 2016
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.
