Fertilization

Lawn, shrub and tree fertilization is very important to the health of your plant material.  Healthy material is less susceptible to disease and will ward off insects better that unhealthy material.  A proper fertilization schedule would be one time per season.  Unless you have a very large property a hand held broadcaster is all you will need to apply the fertilizer.  For shrubs that are not planted close together or that are in a container, simply sprinkle some fertilizer by hand around the base of the plant.  I would suggest using an organic fertilizer as this will not percolate through the soil and contaminate the ground water like the chemical fertilizers do.
