Shrub fertilizer is a key part of maintaining the beauty of your landscape. Like all living things, shrubs require nutrients in specific amounts in order to grow strong and healthy.
However, often they are managed for aesthetics rather than health, which can result in excessive pruning, over or improper planting or inappropriate site selection. This in turn leads to less sunlight, reduced air flow, and decreased nutrients.
In urban or suburban settings, landscape shrubs compete fiercely for soil nutrients and water and are particularly at risk for nutrient deficiencies. This issue can be compounded by possible stress from compacted soils, drought and root space infringement.
However, appropriately timed and formulated nutrient treatments injected via deep root fertilization can go a long way to restore tree health and maintain vigor.
