Mix Plant-tone into the top 4 inches of soil at the rate of 4 lbs. per 100 sq. ft.
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.
In general, feed trees and shrubs twice a year - Spring and Fall. Feed flowers and vegetables once per month through the growing season.
