It’s August – time to fertilize your trees!
Fannin Tree Farm is excited to announce we are replacing our Osmocote recommendation for newly planted tree after-care to our “slow release” Fannin Tree Farm Professional Tree Fertilizer. Our new fertilizer is designed specifically for trees and is recommended to be used in April and August. In May, Fannin started planting our trees with the Fannin Tree Farm Professional Tree Fertilizer along with a preventative treatment for environmental insect issues such as bores and aphids as an added benefit for our customers at no charge.
Review more information about why you should use our fertilizer below!
Why Fannin’s Professional Tree Fertilizer?
In most of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the soil is very high in calcium and magnesium is limited. Fannin’s Professional Tree Fertilizer aids in balancing nutrition and improves uptake of other nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and iron. It also plays a role in developing plant cells and the chlorophyll molecule (which is responsible for photosynthesis).
Where can I get Fannin’s Professional Tree Fertilizer?
We have our Fannin Tree Farm Professional Tree Fertilizer in our retail center in Frisco, Texas. You can buy it with your tree purchase and come in any time and buy a new bottle as needed.
What if I still have Osmocote to use for the August fertilizer treatment?
You can still use the Osmocote to finish out what you have, but when getting ready to re-stock we highly recommend you do so with Fannin’s Professional Tree Fertilizer.
Can I use Fannin’s Professional Tree Fertilizer on all of my trees?
Yes, you can. While newly planted trees definitely need the fertilizer in April and August, you can use it on all your trees regardless of age.
