The Q&A Archives: Should Healthy Acubas Be Fertilized?

Question: I have 5 healthy male and female 3 year old acubas. I was tempted to fertilize with
Holly-Tone today. Couldn't find this information in any of my gardening books.
Should they be fertilized, when and with what? Thank you.

Answer: If the plants seem healthy and have not been fertilized recently, they may not need fertilizer. The answer to your question would be answered on the basis of soil tests. Your county extension should be able to help you with the tests and interpreting the results with an eye toward the aucubas.
