One of the best ways to make sure that your shrubs and trees survive the long Pennsylvania winters is to use a process called deep root feeding. Deep root feeding pushes nutrients that your plants and shrubs need deep into the soil to the root of the tree or shrub where more of the nutrients can be absorbed into the root. By depositing the nutrients so close to the root the tree or shrub will get more of the nutrients that it needs in order to keep the plant or shrub healthy. Just like you need the right vitamins and minerals to stay healthy a plant or tree needs those things too. And our Philadelphia plant health experts know exactly how to give your plants and trees the nutrition they need to thrive.
What Happens During A Deep Root Feeding?
When one of our Philadelphia plant care specialists performs a deep root feeding they will place a pipe deep into the ground near the roots of the trees or shrubs on your property. Then they will deliver just the right amount of liquid nutrients to the plant or tree through a pressurized hose that deposits the nutrients close to the roots. The pressurization propels that liquid nutrient formula through the pipe and through the dirt around the roots so that the nutrients are delivered to the right spot.
Our Philadelphia plant health experts use only the best nutrient formulas that are designed specifically to meet the needs of trees and plants in the local area. So you can be sure that your trees and shrubs are getting the nutrients that they need to survive through the hot summer, rainy spring, snowy winter and cool autumn.
Safe For Pets And Kids
The solution that is used to give nutrients to your plants and shrubs is totally non-toxic and contains only the vitamins and minerals that plants and trees need to be healthy. And because the solution is deposited directly into the ground near the root of the tree or shrub there is no danger to pets or kids. Your water and the soil around the plants and trees will also be safe.
The Best Times For Deep Root Feeding
Deep root feeding can be done anytime of the year. But, according to our highly experienced Philadelphia plant care experts the best times to get deep root feeding for you plants and trees is just before summer and at the end of the autumn. That’s because in the early spring the soil is usually full of nutrients and the plants and trees are ready to burst into bloom. But by the end of the spring when the warm weather comes those nutrients can be depleted leaving plants and shrubs without the elements they need to grow. The lack of nutrition combined with the hot sun and dry conditions can make it very difficult for trees and plants to grow and stay healthy during the summer. Deep root feeding just before the start of summer gives plants and trees the extra boost of nutrition they need in order to stay healthy during the long, hot, and dry summer.
Getting a deep root feeding is also recommended just before winter sets in which around her can be as early as October. During September and October plants and trees are getting ready to settle in and fight off the snow and cold of the winter months. They will lie dormant during the winter months and they will need the nutrients from a deep root feeding in order to stay alive and healthy during that period of dormancy. The extra nutrients will also give them a boost when spring comes again so that they can start growing as soon as the warm weather comes.
