Besides, what plants can I use Holly tone on?
Holly-tone ® is a fertilizer designed to feed plants that prefer to live in acidic soils. Some examples of acid-loving plants are: azalea, dogwood, rhododendron, ferns, hemlock, holly, hydrangea, juniper, arborvitae, magnolia, Japanese Andromeda (pieris), pachysandra, vinca and many other evergreens.
One may also ask, can you use too much Holly Tone? A: It would take a ridiculous amount to kill any plant with a granular, organic fertilizer like Holly-tone. An excess would have more of a gradual detrimental effect, such as affecting the tree's color or making them more attractive to bugs.
Similarly one may ask, what is Holly Tone good for?
Holly-tone is an organic & natural fertilizer that's not just for Hollies. It can be used for any acid-loving plants, such as blueberries, camellias, rhododendrons, evergreens, hydrangeas and more. When you apply the fertilizer in late fall, only use half of the recommended dosage.
Is Holly Tone good for pine trees?
Feeding them with Holly-tone in spring creates bigger blooms — and more of them. Feeding them again in the fall will ensure year-round health and beauty of your Acid-Loving plants. Fertilize evergreens, like spruces, firs, hemlock and pines, to encourage a deep, healthy green color.
