Espoma Organic Tree-Tone Plant Food 6-3-2 is a superior all-natural plant food that is created to provide the required nutrients for shade, fruit, and ornamental trees. It is a special blend that contains 100% natural and organic ingredients to give a balance and complete food to the roots, leaves and trunk of a tree. Coming in a 4-pound bag, the product is enriched with Bio-tone beneficial microbes to help boost the growth and development of the whole tree and provide all the nutrients it needs.
For proper growth, trees should be fed twice yearly:
Early Spring - Before growth starts.
Fall - After leaves drop, but before ground freezes.
HOW TO USE
Sprinkle on ground over area equal to root spread. This can be estimated as the area under and slightly beyond the branch spread.
Make holes 2 to 3 inches in diameter, 2 to 3 feet apart, and 12 to 18 inches deep under the drip line (outer edges of branches) of the tree with an auger. Divide Tree-tone evenly among the holes, fill remainder of hole with soil and water thoroughly.
The amount of Tree-tone required is determined by the caliper or diameter of the trunk. On medium and large trees this should be measured at a point 4 feet above the ground.
Small Trees up to 3 inch diameter: 3 lbs. total
Medium Trees 3 to 6 inch diameter: 4 lbs. per inch
Large Trees over 6 inch diameter: 6 lbs. per inch
WHEN TO USE
One time each in Spring and Fall
WHERE TO USE
All fruit, shade and ornamental trees
Slow release formula provides a long lasting nutrient reservoir to feed the entire tree, leaves, trunk, and roots.
This is an excellent soul amendment for trees. I have a farm located on sandy soil with poor nutrients. Tree Tone does wonders for my fruit and deciduous trees especially oaks. I apply it twice a year - in March and October.
