HOW TO HELP BALANCE THE PH OF YOUR TREE SOIL

By annually adding lime to your trees, you will help balance the pH of your soil and allow maximum release of all the nutrients in your fertilizer.

Note: *Be sure to stake your tree for added support until roots get established; approximately for a couple of years depending on the variety. Also, make sure to feed with E.B. Stone Tree & Shrub Food throughout the growing season.
