Garden Beds

Mix Plant-tone into the top 4 inches of soil at the rate of 4 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.

New Plantings

Dig hole twice as wide and same depth as root ball. Loosen roots and spread them into prepared hole. Remove 1/3 of soil and replace with compost or soil mix. Mix 1-2 cups of Plant-tone into soil mix. Do not mound the stems. Water thoroughly and add mulch to conserve water and control weeds.

Established Plants

Sprinkle 1 cup of Plant-tone around the drip-line of the plant (forming a circle under the plant's outer leaves). For trees and shrubs, use 1 cup for each foot of branch spread (diameter of plant).

Potted Plants
