Feeding Acid Loving Plants With Holly-tone
Established acid-loving plants should be fed twice yearly, spring and late fall. Sprinkle Holy-Tone around like adding salt and pepper to food. If the area to be fed is mulched it is preferable to remove the mulch, feed, and then restore the mulch on top of the application of plant food. If this is not possible, double all recommended feeding rates.
In The Spring
Trees such as hollies, hemlocks and juniper:
1 lb. of Holly-Tone per inch of trunk diameter. Triple the quantity for diameters 3 inches and over.
For Shrubs such as hollies, azaleas, and rhododendron:
1 cupful of Holly-Tone per foot of branch spread. Double the quantity if branch spread is 3 feet or larger.
In The Fall
The plants should be given a light feeding in the late fall. Use the quantities recommended for spring.
