Veronica,

Choose a lawn type fertilizer with a nutrient ration similar to 3-1-2 (such as 15-5-10 for example). Apply it in early spring, late spring and mid summer at a rate of 2 cups per inch of trunk diameter. Spread it evenly in a large circular area extending out to the outer branch spread and then water it in well. Maintain moist but not soggy soil throughout the growing season.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
