The Kerby's Special Fertilizer Instructions



All Plants: It’s simple: 1 teaspoon per foot of height. Estimate the height of a plant in feet and that’s the number of teaspoons to use. If your plants are young and smaller than a foot, use a half teaspoon.


For established plants, do the same thing, but increase to 1 tablespoon per foot of height. That way you deliver older plants more nutrients each time you fertilize.



How Often: For new plants apply fertilizer once per month for the first year. For established plants apply fertilizer three times per year, once each in the spring, summer and fall.



How to Apply: Sprinkle fertilizer evenly on the ground above the roots. Pulling back the mulch will get the nutrients right into the roots, but it isn’t necessary. Once applied, water thoroughly.



Lawns: Apply at the rate of 10 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. three times per year, once each in the spring, summer and fall.
