Best For

Plants that thrive in acidic soil, including azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, hydrangeas, gardenias, evergreens, holly, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, dogwoods, and magnolias.

New plants: Add 1 cup Garden Maker™ Acid Adoring fertilizer per 5 gallons of soil. After planting, sprinkle an additional ½ cup fertilizer around the base of the plant, then apply mulch.

Established plants: Top-dress monthly during the growing season with 1 cup Garden Maker™ Acid Adoring fertilizer per foot of plant height or branch spread. Gently work into the mulch at the base of the plant. Since many acid-loving plants have surface roots, try not to disturb the soil.

Berries: For new berry plants, apply 1 lb Garden Maker™ Acid Adoring fertilizer per 50 feet of row space at planting and 30 days later. For established berry rows, broadcast 2 to 3 lbs per row of space once in the spring, before growth starts, and once again in May.

Five pounds of Garden Maker™ Acid Adoring is enough fertilizer for a single application on 250 row feet of new berry plants or 100 row feet of established berry plants or flowers.

Safety & Storage
We recommend storing this fertilizer in a dry, sealed container.

Garden Maker™ Naturals fertilizers are packaged in kraft paper bags that are 100% recyclable, compostable and/or biodegradable.
