Yes. I use the time release fertilizer on all my flowering plants and the PW water soluble fertilizer. Use the time release when planting and the water soluble every 7-10 days throughout the growing season. You will be amazed.

Does this work on planting trees, mainly a shumard red oak?

I probably wouldn't use the Proven Winners time-release fertilizer to plant a tree. I would go with the espoma biotone starter fertilizer. Great product for planting as it contains mycorrhizae and increases the plant's ability to uptake nutrients.

After searching I still cannot find any information on how much to apply to existing or newly pla...

That is my biggest problem. NO NO direction on the container.. return it.

I first wasn't sure if this is the right product for me.I have always had a BROWN THUMB! I couldn't grow anything. It always died. I had written in and asked the question if Proven Winners Fertilizer would work for growing vegetables. The rep. said yes. Right after her reply I had planted some squash, tomatoes, green peppers in containers.I had even started summer squash from seedlings. About a month ago. (I chose Proven Winners time released fertilizer for my little mini garden. ) I can only say I am so impressed, my plants look great! I have green peppers , tomatoes and my squash plants rock! I am sold on this product. My mother has a green thumb as to say, she is amazed with my mini garden. This makes me proud. Thanks I am sold on this product. Proven Winners gave me a GREEN THUMB....lol!

Excellent fertilizer for tight spaces
Due to small area I have lots of pots which are over-populated. Due to which it is harder to dig around and use regular compost and manure. Proven Winners 2.5 lb. Time Release Fertilizer came pretty handy for those pots. My strawberry pot is showing lots of promise and I am looking forward to a bumper crop this year. It has worked well with my roses too. Great product.

So simple even a gardener can do it!
There's a lot to like about this PW fertilizer ...... 1. It comes with its own measuring spoon 2. There's an easy to follow measuring chart in the instructions which tells you exactly how many spoonfuls to use depending on the size of the container, so there's no guessing at too much or too little 3. It isn't necessary to mix the granules into the soil of an already existing potted plant, just sprinkle on the soil surface and water in 4. Feeds all types of plants so you only need this one fertilizer for almost everything 5. You only need to feed the plants every 6 months because of the time release granules 6. No need for a hose or sprayer or other application device - measure out the granules with the spoon or sprinkle direct from the shaker container

Excellent Fertilizer!
The PW Time Release Fertilizer is an excellent product. First of all, it is easy to use. All you have to do is sprinkle it over your plants, water regularly and the fertilizer will continuously release nutrients to the plants. No messy dissolving in water, special application containers, or hooking up to a hose. The results are excellent. Plenty of vibrant blooms and strong growth. This fertilizer delivers.
