How much fertilizer does a pomegranate tree need?
As a pomegranate tree grows, it needs proportionately more fertilizer each year. Generally, use about twice as much fertilizer in the second year, or 2 to 4 cups, again dividing it into three well-spaced applications, and about three times as much in year three and each subsequent year.
How do you take care of a pomegranate tree?
For best growth and fruit production, pomegranates need deep, slightly acidic, moist soil. Plants need irrigating every 7 to 10 days when there isn鈥檛 significant rainfall. It鈥檚 important to maintain adequate soil moisture in late summer and early fall to reduce potential fruit splitting.
When should I fertilize my maple tree?
Maple trees usually tell you if they need to be fertilized. The rule of thumb is that if they grow about 6 inches in a year, the soil is good, but if the growth is less than 2 inches, it鈥檚 time to fertilize. Maple trees tend to respond best to slow release nitrogen fertilizers. Spike fertilizers are especially effective for fertilizing maple trees.
