Shrub Fertilization and Insect Control
Flower bed pre-emergent helps prevent germination of seeds in flower bed preventing certain weed types throughout the year.
Palm Tree Fertilization and Insect Control
Palms are very susceptible to nutrient deficiencies of nitrogen, potassium, magnesium and manganese. Symptoms include yellowing, streaking or even spotting of the fronds. Palm fertilization is important as they benefit from a steady supply of nutrients that’s added during the growing season (March through October). They may fail to thrive without a regular, balanced fertilization program. Mature palms should optimally receive a granular fertilizer known as “palm special” as it’s formulated specifically for them.
Common insects that affect palms include:
- spider mites
- palm leaf skeletonizers
- and scale insects
While you might think that any kind of fertilization is good for your ornamental shrubs, the truth is that you'll want to base fertilization on the type of shrubs that you have. Specific shrubs have specific needs, and not properly catering to those needs can do more harm than good.
