The Q&A Archives: best fertilizer

Question: What is best fertilizer for recently planted Hopseed? As they mature?

Answer: I wouldn't feed a recently planted hopseed bush. Give it 3-4 weeks to establish its roots. When you see new growth you can feed it lightly (I use a half-strength dilution of liquid 20-20-20). As it becomes well established, you can feed with a general purpose time released granular fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 just as new growth begins in the spring.
