Preparing New Flower Beds
Mix Flower-tone into the top four or five inches of soil at the rate of 10 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. or 1 cup per
sq. ft. (2 ft. x 2 ft.) An additional feeding should be made after the plants are well established.
Seeds should be planted to their recommended depth. If the flower bed has already been prepared
(see above) simply fill the hole with prepared soil. If the soil has not been prepared, cover the seed with soil and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Flower-tone over the seed.
Flowers from containers:
Gently remove the plant from its container. Loosen the roots and spread them into the prepared hole.
The depth of the hole should not be greater than the size of the root ball. Refill the hole with prepared soil and then tamp soil gently but firmly. If the soil has not been prepared add 2 tablespoons of Flower-tone mixed with soil for seedlings from market packs. For larger plants, one or two gallon containers mix 1/2 cup with the soil and fill as above. Always finish by watering thoroughly.
Feed monthly approximately 1/4 cup from the beginning of the growing season until the middle of Sept.
Broadcast 1/4 cup Flower-tone around the plant. Be careful not to put the plant food on the plant foliage or stem and do not mound the application.
Sprinkle Flower-tone around like adding salt and pepper to food. After feeding water thoroughly.
Established Flower Beds:
Broadcast Flower-tone at the rate of 5 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. (or 1/4 cup per plant) Be careful not to put the plant food on the plant foliage or stem and do not mound the application.
Sprinkle Flower-tone around like adding salt and pepper to food.
After feeding water thoroughly, and rinse off any fertilizer that is on the foliage.
