New Plantings: During bed preparation, mix in 1-1/2 cups Dr. Earth Organic 3 per 10 square feet. Use 1/4 cup for a 1-gallon plant in planting hole, or 1 cup per 5-gallon plant in planting hole. Apply 7 cups for every 50 feet of row. Feed once at planting and every 8 weeks during the growing season.
Established Plants: In beds, use 1 cup for every 10 square feet. Mix 3-1/2 cups per 50 feet of row. Or apply 2 cups per inch of trunk diameter (measured at 4″ to 6″ above soil line). Feed in early spring, again after first blooms fade, and again in midsummer. Mix with soil and water well.

New Plantings: Before you plant, add 2 cups per 1/2 cubic foot (approx. 5 gallons) of soil that will be added to the planting hole. After planting, add another 2 cups around the plant and mix into the soil. Water well. Apply every 8 weeks during the growing season.
Established Plants: Use 2 cups for every inch of trunk diameter (measured at 4″ to 6″ above soil line.) Work into the soil gently, use inside of the drip line. Or make fertilizer tea as per the next section. Water thoroughly.
