Autumn is for fertilizer ago

few weeks I was struck by the yellow foliage on a number of my young pines. After thinking for a moment, I came to the conclusion that I had not been enough for fertilization. black pines in development require a lot of fertilizer. If you do not receive enough food that can quickly turn yellow. Fortunately, the solution is simple – eat more! I started feeding my trees more frequently – about twice a week with fish emulsion – and apply iron chelates to help green trees. As you can see below, some of the trees greened faster than others.

The tree on the left is still a little yellow – both trees are in full sun

Feeding this time of year is important for all varieties, as it is the last chance to get trees to increase their strength before winter. This is especially important for the trees can not feed so strongly in the spring as white pine or deciduous varieties.

Depending on the weather, some varieties will continue to grow until December where I live. Others already are slowing. I will continue to feed the trees that are active and feeding schedule delay as the weather cools.
