How to Collect A Sample

Product Application Timing

  • Flowers

    • Roses require constant feeding during their blooming season. To keep them happy, spoon-feed your roses every 2-3 weeks with your recommended fertilizer. It is best to feed them at lower rates more often, rather than one large feeding. It is best to feed only well-established plants, as seedlings can be adversely affected by direct feeding.

  • Trees

    • Trees and shrubs like an application of a balanced granular fertilizer. This should be accomplished in the spring and fall. Apply your recommended fertilizer in spring, early summer, and fall.

  • Vegetable Garden

    • Before planting, work recommended fertilizer into the soil.

    • Most summer vegetables require abundant nutrients. Tomatoes and corn, for example, are heavy nitrogen consumers. To provide consistent nutrients for fruit-producing plants, we recommend monthly sampling to ensure your plants have adequate nutrients and to minimize misapplication.
