One pound equals approx. 3 cupfuls.
Note: Azaleas, rhododendrons and laurel are shallow rooted plants. Keep them mulched and well watered in dry weather. Do not cultivate near them as surface roots may be cut and the plant damaged.

Dig a hole twice as wide and about as deep as the root ball. Discard half of the soil removed and replace it with good humus. Add one cup Holly-tone® and mix thoroughly.

Established acid-loving plants should be fed twice yearly, spring and late fall. Use half the recommended rate in the fall. If the area to be fed is mulched, it is preferable to remove the mulch, feed, and then restore the mulch on top of the application of plant food. If this is not possible, double all recommended feeding rates.

Trees: 1 pound of Holly-tone® per inch of trunk diameter. Triple the quantity for diameters three inches and over.
Shrubs: One cupful of Holly-tone® per foot of branch spread. Double the quantity if branch spread is three feet or larger.
Beds: Preparation of new bed - mix 10 pounds of Holly-tone® per 100 square feet and incorporate into the top 4 or 5 inches of soil. Feed established beds 5 pounds of Holly-tone® per 100 square feet.
