Fruit Trees Alive! has been specially formulated to meet the growth demands of apples, peaches & most other fruit trees. Eleven macro- and micronutrients, including copper and sulfur, produce the delicious sweetness so characteristic of well-grown, tree-ripened fruits.
Fruit Trees Alive! was designed for medium to heavy soils with average fertility. On sandy soils, or for the first year of growth, use our Build- Up Formula, which contains extra micronutrients. Follow up annually with Maintenance Formula to replace nutrients used for growth and production.
Fruit Trees Alive!® Build-Up Formula
For small, newly planted trees, scatter about 2 cups around the trunk; for larger new trees, apply at the rate of 10 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. For severely depleted soils, apply in the second year at the rate of 5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. in spring and again in midsummer.
