Depends on what type of fert. you use and soil conditions and the type of plant. Some are more hungry for one element than another. 1 app. a year should do the trick. A mychirizial app. may be a good idea as well.

We have had an amazing response With holly tone to our customers rhodys and azeleas. Once a year in the fall.

I just got finished a very large shrub and tree fert job today using all Espoma products, like Greensman. Holly-Tone and Plant-Tone. I always suggest fertilizing in the fall. Use an acid fertilizer (like Holly-Tone) for those evergreen plans, Joshuea.
