First Year Care for Shrubs

Do not use fertilizer for the first year. Use a root stimulator instead. It promotes solid root growth to support the plant as it grows larger.

Feeding an Fertilizing for Shrubs

Woody plants like shrubs and trees do best with a slow releasing, low nitrogen fertilizer. A slow release fertilizer is important so that the plant is not forced to grow too fast while getting the nutrients that your shrubs will need.
