For the fruit or just for the beauty! Fruit trees are sometimes grown for the floral beauty they display in the spring as well as for the fruit they produce later in the year. Annual pruning, regular watering and occasional fertilizing are necessary to maintain the health of fruit trees. It is important to understand what fertilizer is, how it works and when it is needed, before choosing one and applying it. Too much of the wrong nutrients could diminish your blossoms and fruit.
Fertilizer needs for fruit trees Soil can become depleted of its natural nutrients. Some soil, because of its composition, lacks nutrients to grow certain types of plants. Fertilizer is a means of adding those nutrients back into the soil to sustain plant growth. Fruit trees do not generally require a special fertilizer. Under normal circumstances, a general fertilizer that provides nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium is usually sufficient.
