Best Evergreen Fertilizer?

Postby Charli » Wed May 08, 2013 12:50 pm

Evergreens that grow naturally in the forest derive much of their nutrition from the needle and leaf litter that covers the forest floor. In gardens, that nutrition source is often removed by the gardener, necessitating the use of an evergreen fertilizer. Regular fertilizing might be needed if your evergreens are growing in a less-than-ideal site. If the soil is very sandy or has a high clay content, fertilization might help.

The plant itself will often indicate when it needs fertilizer. If growth rate and needle color are normal for a particular variety, fertilization is not necessary. If new growth is sparse or slow, or the needles are not a healthy color, or are shorter than normal, you should probably fertilize. Keep in mind, however, it is not unusual or abnormal for newly transplanted evergreens to exhibit slow growth until they're re-established.

Evergreens are woody conifers that remain green throughout the year and do not lose leaves, or needles, during the fall and winter months. This species of plant ranges in height from small bushes to tall-growing trees. Most varieties produce seed cones that hang under the branches and drop during the fall season. The trees grow on a main trunk stem, reach 15 to 60 feet in height and require a planting location with no overhead obstructions.
