Plants lose a lot of nutrients fighting off the elements. Plants may turn brown from freeze damage, and we don’t know the extent of the damage until spring when new shoots and buds show that your plants are going to be ok, but it doesn’t mean that your plants are 100%.
The answer: Spring Fertilization
What are the Main Benefits for Spring Fertilization? Spring is the best time to fertilize your trees, shrubs and plants for the following three reasons:
- Spring fertilization jump starts your plant’s ability to grow
- Repairs damage from the winter months
- Helps add green color to your plants quickly
Caring for your landscape in spring helps it stay healthy throughout the rest of the year.
