Fruit Trees Alive!® Maintenance
Stronger roots and more yield
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!® Maintenance Formula
After using our Build-Up Formula for one year, switch to this Maintenance Formula as long as soil is not severely depleted. For best results, apply at the rate of 5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. in spring, then reapply in midsummer.
Fruit Trees Alive! Fertilizer Spikes gives plants the nutrients they need for healthy growth in an easy-to-use, stake form. Simply drive the stakes into moist soil (water before placing spikes if soil is dry), ensuring they are equally spaced at least 3 feet apart around the dripline. Never place the spikes closer than 2 feet from tree trunks. Hammer the spikes to ground level using the plastic pounding caps provided. The spikes are formulated using the Fruit Trees Alive! formula.
