    well its only been less than a month, but im getting anxious to get going with the new season. guess im just a glutton for punishment. question: does anyone offer fertilization for plants and trees? the only thing ive done personally is feeding of shrubs with ozmecote. does anyone offer fert services for shrubbery and trees, and what do u use?

    I am in the Carolina's but feeding tree and shrubs is horticulturly
    sound, and a good profit for you. I think the home owner sees
    value in healthy plants.
    I like deep rot injections with a blanced fert with U.F. like Arbor Green or Boost. You do need a sprayer that has 150psi or greater and that can mix the fert.

    Granulars are good too. I feed in early spring and late summer.
    I use 100% slow NPK with minors when I can not inject.
