The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing ornamental shrubs

Question: I like to use a general purpose fertilizer like 10/10/10 in the woodland area of my property. How much should I apply around the drip line of my ornamental shrubs?

Answer: The fertilizer label should offer some suggestions but it is usually safe to use 1/2 to 1 cup of 10-10-10 fertilizer around small trees and shrubs. Good luck with your garden!
