Espoma Flower-tone® is a premium floral fertilizer that was formulated especially to ensure bigger, more beautiful blooms. Instead of getting an unwanted heavier foliage, the low nitrogen, high phosphorus, and high potassium allows for more flowers. Being that the fertilizer breaks down gradually, you will supply your flowers with a safe and long lasting supply of nutrients all throughout the season. Mixed with Biotone®, microbes are present in this all natural fertilizer and are proven to ensure health and growth in plants.
When Preparing New Flowers: You will mix in 4 pounds of fertilizer into the top few layers (4 or 5 inches) of soil for every 80 square feet. You will need to feed your flowers with Espoma Flower-tone® once plants are well-established to ensure that they get the nutrients they need.
Seeds: You can dig recommended depth and place seeds in hole. You will fill the hole with your freshly prepared soil (above). If you did not yet prepare soil, cover the seeds with regular soil, and sprinkle two tablespoons of fertilizer over the seeds.
Flowers in Containers: Take the flowers out of their containers with care (be gentle!). Then, you will need to loosen the roots and prepare them to be planted into the ground. When you spread the roots into the hole you dug (no bigger than the root ball itself), refill the hole with prepared soil. You should pat dirt gently to ensure it is set in place. If the soil is not prepared, add 2 tablespoons into the soil your plant came with and mix.
Individual Established Flowers: Sprinkle 1/4 cup of fertilizer around plant.
Established Flower Beds: Sprinkle 4 pounds for every 80 square feet of soil.
Water thoroughly after feeding.
