            Q:Can this be used to feed Japanese Holly?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Yes. I used it annually on my many mature Japanese holly bushes. The bushes were badly in need of attention when we moved in five years ago. My main 'treatments' have been Hollytone and judicious pruning. They look great now.

            by|Aug 21, 2022

              A:  Yes,but keep the PH level between 4.5 and 6.5. Check with a PH metere

              by|Aug 22, 2022

                A:  While I don’t know the answer to this, I would call a local nursery and ask them this question. They should know. I googled it and is this type of holly is acid loving then yes it can be used.

                  Q:Can I use this for Roses and Azaleas
                  by|Apr 19, 2022
                  5 Answers
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Good for Azaleas.  Not for roses.   I would use 10-10-10 for roses. 

                  by|Apr 19, 2022

                    A:  Thank you for your question. Holly-tone is a good choice for Azaleas but we recommend Rose-tone for your roses. Roses prefer slightly acidic soil.

                      A:  I don't have azaleas, but did use it and/or its sister product Plant-Tone on all flowers and ground cover...as well as Magnolia and crepe myrtle trees. They are all looking so much better. The roses are just coming in bloom, but the plants are lush and happy. I expect gorgeous flowers to follow soon!

                      by|Apr 19, 2022

                      A:  Holly Tone is for acid loving plants like azaleas. Espoma has another product, Rose Tone especially created for roses.

                      by|Apr 23, 2022

                        A:  Yes, I do it every year on Roses and Azaleas

                              I've been growing Bonsai trees for over 35 years. I've tried many of the expensive imported Japanese organic fertilizers. The Espoma products work, at least as well if not better! You can bet that I wouldn't use anything that I don't have a lot of confidence in on these wonderful old trees!

                              Azaleas & hydrangeas look great after bi annual treatment. Bought a house that did 0 yard maintenance. No flowers grew that year. Did a fall treatment then again in spring. The azaleas are popping, our holly trees actually have berries, and the hydrangeas are lush. Product smells terrible but it works.

                              Third time buying this fertilizer for my holly trees, azaleas and other plants and seems to be helping the bad soil I have giving some nutrients to soil and plants. Only complaint is that is a little expensive and has a horrible poop smell for days.

                              The best plant food of this kind I know.
                              I am enjoying about 30 bushes of rhododendrons and azaleas on my property. Years ago I started with just few inches tall plants which after two decades grew into large bushes. The growth like that requires good nutrients and acid soil. Holy Tone Plant Food takes care about both of them. When plants were smaller, I used Holly tone slightly digging it into the ground above roots. Because I don't not shape or trim my plants soon plants grew into the thick brush. I am still using Holly Tone Plant food, I just toss it over plants just before the rain, or if no rain, I hose spray plants to wash off eventual fertilizer dust on plants. For more details about use and ingredients see pic 1-4. What is nice on this fertilizer besides being organic, that the granule does not melt in the water quickly, so plants are benefited with nutrients gradually for longer time. Now I use this fertilizer pretty generously only at spring time. The bloom every year is rewarding. Besides azaleas and rhododendrons I use this plant food for few hydrangeas, magnolia tree, potted blueberries and other acid soil loving plants. All of them are doing great.

                              Great Fertilizer
                              I have been using Holly Tone Plant Food for about 2 years now. It was recommended by a manager at one of my local nurseries to help bring some spring flush to several of the bushes surrounding the foundation of my house. It did great last year after a very rough winter, and I will use it again this year. It was recommended that I use about a cup every spring and fall. I did that last year with wonderful success. So when I saw the 8lb. bag available at The Home Depot, I grabbed it immediately. I will definitely recommend it to any friend or family member.

                              Excellent Organic garden Food!
                              The Espoma Organic Hollytone Evergreen & Azelia Food for organic gardening is of ecellent quality. I used it on the pictured plant. Within just one week I saw healthy new growth and blooms. As it is a slow release fertilizer that breaks down gradually it has a long lasting effect. This organic plant food also smells great and is easy to apply. I highly recommend it for all acid loving plants.
