Question From: T. MICHAELS - Dumfries, Virginia, United States
Q: We recently planted, last early fall, a 'Showy' Mountain Ash, probably about a 6 yr.old tree, in Zone 4/5 of the U.P. of Michigan. We are hopeful of success and years of enjoyment ! In order to "help it," is there a fertilizer stake product with a combination of systemic fungicide and insecticide to ward off the various funguses and that borer pest I have heard it is attacked by? So I guess I am looking for an easy prevention product to increase our chances for success ! We do have it planted in near-full sun and well-drained soil. Thanks for any advice.
