aerating

Posted by dmhutchens | April 20, 2019

Attended your Class at N. Tapps last night - Can you recommend a company to Aerate in the Auburn area. Also if I already put Turf Builder and Soil Sweet down - should I also put down the fertilizer you recommended - slow release 28-0-3??

Application Rates

Posted by Carolyn Lugo | April 20, 2019

Hello Marianne, Please tell me the application rate when using the Flower and Vegetable Plant Food for established perennials. The container only gives rates for 4" transplants and a broadcast rate. How would I use it for individual established perennials and also for things such as peonies and clematis vines. Thank you. Carolyn

Hello! My shrub was planted last fall, and the care card indicates that I need to use slow release fertilizer on it. Not really sure if I can dig up the soil around it without hurting it, Can I sprinkle the granules around it and then apply some fresh soil and the water? Thx!!
