Fertilizers In Tree Holes

Would it be harmful to add 2 or 3 pounds of steamed bone meal to the

hole of a young tree just before planting?

There would be no injury, providing you mix it with a considerable

amount of soil by digging over the bottom of the hole, but our

conviction is that on lands which are good enough for the commercial

planting of fruit trees, it is not necessary to stimulate a young tree

in this way, but that it is better to postpone the use of fertilizers

until the trees come into bearing and show the desirability of more

liberal feeding. Of course, if young trees do not make satisfactory

growth, they may be stimulated either with some kind of a fertilizer or

with a freer use of water, and it is generally the latter that they are

chiefly in need of.
