Applying Holly Tone To Barberries

Question From: Crystal Lake, Illinois, United States
Q: Hi, Is it okay to fertilize Japanese Concorde Barberries with Honey-tone? Many thanks, Byron

A: Byron, Barberries prefer slightly acid soil so Espoma HollyTone, which is what I think you were referring to, will work well. It's best applied in spring to barbs but you can use it now. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
