Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Make sure you have the right product for your trees and shrubs The quality and value of this product is very good. However you should be cautious about matching the right fertilizer to the right tree. This product even though flowering shrubs are pictured on the cover is not the right product for flowering trees, fruit and nut trees or flowering shrubs. It has too much nitrogen, which promotes leafy growth at the expense of flowers, blossoms fruit and nut production. Look for a product that specifically says fruit or flowering trees. One that has a high phosphorus count than nitrogen. Vigoro has a product specifically for flowering trees, so make sure you are matching the right fertilizer to the right tree. June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by If your want healthy colorful trees I absolutely recommend this product I commented to my husband just this evening how hearty our ornamental trees were since we used these tree spikes. They are almost too healthy because they will have to be trimmed back a lot but that's a good thing. It's better then looking at a unhealty tree. I have a japanese ornamental tree in the front yard and wanted it moved back closer to the house when we omitted the dying shrubs in back of it. I had quotes up to $1200 to move it back three feet. One yard man told me he wouldn't even touch the job because these trees are so fragile to move. Well we decided to do it ourselves and between being very careful and using these spikes this tree is thriving beautifully. It's very full and colorful. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good value for the help of new trees, We planted a new tree to replace one that had had gotten destroyed by a "virus" and we wanted to add nutrients to help it grow. October 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stuff The fertilizer spikes gives off the right amount fertilizer for my grandmothers pink dogwood tree. Perfect stuff if you forget to fertilize on a regular basis. October 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tree Fertilizer Spikes For a change of pace I thought I'd try these long lasting fertilizer spikes versus the surface sprinkle variety. They require a hammer or mallet to pound intro the ground. Ohio ground has a heavy clay base a few inches below the ground thus using a crow bar to open the ground helped in getting the spike below the dirt surface. Time will tell if the spikes are effective for long term. September 23, 2014
