Fertilizer Recommendations

Q: Most of the bushes in my yard have fertilizer recommendations of 10-10-10. For many years I’ve used liquid 10-10-10, mixing it with water from my rain barrel, but I can not longer find it. What do you recommend instead?

A: You can use the granular 10-10-10 that comes in a big bag. Simply scatter it on the ground at the recommended rate and let the rain dissolve it into the soil. A typical rate is one tablespoonful per foot of shrub height.
