Healthy Soil … Healthy Tree —

Product is a multi-purpose granulated blend safe for all landscape and gardening needs.

Developed to address poor soil structure such as; compaction issues, absorption ability, low microbial activity (the microscopic bugs in soil that make it “alive”), nutrient deficiency and availability of nutrients in high pH soils.

Formulation is based on years of research, education, soil testing, and observation.

What You Need to Know —

Educate Yourself! Improper tree selection, planting and maintenance practices can lead to premature tree death.

Broadleaf weed control on turf can have a negative impact on a tree’s root system since many trees are a broadleaf too!

pH and Nutrient Availability —

Natural soil tested less than 6 pH
Landscape soil tested nearly 8 pH

Humans and trees require many of the same minerals necessary for survival.

Ideal soil pH varies according to plant species but optimum ranges are often 6 to 6.5 pH.

All living organisms need minerals to survive and there is more to a “balanced fertilizer mix” than the average N-P-K products usually
available to the consumer.

This product is not intended to be a “fix-all” solution; but along with proper maintenance and watering practices, it will increase your tree’s own natural ability to survive.

Mineral Nutrients —

Nitrogen is considered the growth element essential throughout the entire growing season. Too much increases the chance of disease, creates soil hardening and reduces microbial activity in the soil.
Phosphorus promotes root development and energy storage, increases nitrogen and mineral uptake.
Potassium improves the immune system, increases vigor, disease resistance and overall strength in plants.
Calcium is a secondary macronutrient necessary for overall plant health, mobilizes nutrients and increases
sugar content necessary for plant energy. Acidic and sandy soils often contain less available calcium.
Magnesium is the key element in chlorophyll production, aids in cell energy release, enzyme function, and
phosphorus uptake. Deficiencies lead to decreased photosynthesis and leaf yellowing symptoms.
Sulfur loosens and aerates soil, lowers pH, builds organic matter and creates a deeper green color; also
known for its fungicidal ability. Deficiencies associated with growth reduction and stunting symptoms.
Boron is a micronutrient considered necessary for calcium uptake and promotes root and leaf growth.
Copper is also a micronutrient which aids in the control of molds and fungi, regulates immune system, and necessary for carbohydrate and nitrogen metabolism. As soil pH increases, uptake in nutrient decreases.
Iron is a micronutrient necessary for nitrogen fixing bacteria, chlorophyll production and energy release.
Manganese is a micronutrient essential for normal growth, aids in nitrogen mobility and utilization.
Zinc is a micronutrient necessary for regulating plant growth, phosphorous uptake and increases leaf size.

Whenever possible, incorporate into soil based on rooting depth of plant. Apply evenly and always water thoroughly after each application. For best results apply according to soil or plant tissue test and store in a cool, dry area away from pets and children.

New Tree Planting: Use ¾ cup per 18 cubic feet (3 ft. x 3 ft. x 2 ft. deep) of nutrient deficient soil. Use ½ of recommended rate for young or sensitive plantings. Incorporate product evenly into backfill and water thoroughly.

New Shrub Planting: Use ¼ cup per 6 cubic feet (2 ft. x 3 ft. x 1 ft. deep) of nutrient deficient soil. Use ½ of recommended rate for young or sensitive plantings. Incorporate product evenly into backfill and water thoroughly.

Established Tree Application Methods: An 8 lb. bag covers approximately 12 small canopy (100 sq. ft.) trees.
Crown Spread Method: Apply 1 ¼ cups per 100 square feet (10 ft. x 10 ft.) or 6.25 lbs. per 1000 square foot (approximately 32 ft. x 32 ft. area). Spread evenly over root zone and water thoroughly after each application. Applications may be made up to 3 times annually.
Tree Diameter Method: See tree diagram. Use 1 cup (approximately ½ lb.) per 1 inch DBH. Spread evenly over root zone and water thoroughly after each application. Applications may be made up to 3 times annually.
Drill Hole Method: Mix 1/3 cup evenly into backfill of each 2 x 12 inch typical, grid patterned hole and water thoroughly. Annual applications may be made.

Restrictions: Do not apply over yard debris, frozen or water saturated soil. Do not apply onto hard surface such as sidewalk or driveway. Do not pile next to trunk or plant base and remove any product from leaf surface.
