Palmgain can be applied every 4 to 6 weeks. It should be spread evenly onto the soil surface and gently worked into the soil. Avoid damage to shallow roots. It should be kept off of the foliage and away from the trunk. Be sure to water the area well before and after fertilizing. Do not apply to dry soil. Take care to brush or wash fertilizer granules off leaves to prevent injury (burn). Do not fertilize immediately when planting palms, wait for the potential of transplant shock to pass (4 to 6 weeks after planting).
Great product with all the right nutrients and minors in the right forms to actually be used by the plants....unlike many of the big box retailers' products. Great company....wonderful service and free shipping with good information on their site.
