Preparing for Spring Fruit-Tree Planting
Without digging a hole, spread one bag of Fall Fruit Tree Mixon an area 4–6' in diameter. Cover with 1/8 yd (about 3-1/2 cu ft or 90 qts) of compost and cover that with 1/8–1/4 yd of chipped branches and brush. As the chipped brush breaks down over the winter it promotes mycorrhizal fungi which improve root growth and function. In the spring, pull back mulch and dig your hole, incorporating the supplements and compost as you back-fill.
One bag contains 5 lbs aragonite, 5 lbs colloidal phosphate, 5 lbs azomite, 5 lbs granite meal, 3 lbs Menefee humates, 3 lbs greensand, 2 lbs bone char, 2 lbs kelp meal, 2 lbs blood meal.
