Autumn fertilizer for conifers prepares conifers, deciduous trees and shrubs for winter. Granulated potassium and magnesium fertilizer, intended for autumn fertilization of all types of coniferous plants. It is also perfect for the cultivation of ornamental deciduous trees and shrubs, because it does not change the reaction of the substrate.
Primarily, the autumn fertilizer for conifers prepares plants for challenging winter conditions. It is worth starting to use autumn fertilizers in summer (even from July, instead of nitrogen fertilizers).
The high potassium content accelerates the lignification of the shoots, which protects the less resistant species of trees and shrubs from freezing. Magnesium is a component of enzymes responsible for plant resistance to temperature changes.
Its content in the autumn fertilizer for conifers effectively prevents the needles of coniferous plants from turning brown. Sulfur, on the other hand, is essential for building chemical compounds that increase plant resistance to fungal and bacterial diseases. Thanks to it, the plants have a better start in spring.
Crucially, conifer autumn fertilizer for conifers lacks nitrogen, avoiding excessive growth and vulnerable new shoots in cold.The balanced composition helps the plants to enter the winter dormancy and increases the winter hardiness and frost resistance of conifers.
The autumn fertilizer for conifers can be used from mid-July in order to better prepare plants for winter dormancy. However, the best time to start fertilizing with fall fertilizer is August. Then the plants will have time to make optimal use of the nutrients supplied before the onset of winter.
Climate shifts lengthened summer-autumn, extending plant growth in recent years. Therefore, fertilization with autumn fertilizer for conifers can be repeated after 2 months.
Frozen soil hampers nutrient absorption by plants, making timely fertilization vital. Autumn fertilizer for conifers can also be used in spring, but then it is worth supplementing it with nitrogen fertilizer.
The dose depends on the height of the plant:
- use 30 g of fertilizer (about one handful) for every 1 meter of plant height,
- creeping plants: use 30 g of fertilizer for every 1 meter of plant span.
Spread the autumn fertilizer for conifers evenly around the plant and, if possible, mix it with the top layer of soil, and after use, water it abundantly. The fertilizer in contact with moist soil will gradually dissolve.
* one handful is about 30-40 g of fertilizer.
