How To Promote Flowering And Health In Forsythia Bush

Question From: New Hampshire, United States
Q: What is the best fertilizer use on a Forsythia promote flowering and health of the plant...

A: Once established, most shrubs do not need fertilizing, If it is not doing well it may need more sun, more water or less water. Too much nitrogen such as lawn fertilizer will keep it from blooming. All that being said, folks feel the need to fertilize - remember, it is not food, it acts as a stimulant. If you still feel the "need" I recommend Plant Tone by Espoma. Use it according to package directions in late winter or early spring. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
