Hello, my name is Nicholas Staddon and I'm with Monrovia. Today, we're going to talk about how to fertilize acid-loving Boxwoods. Boxwoods are beautiful plants and they are so useful in the garden but also it's for different applications, but it's the soil that's the important thing and keeping them really healthy. So look at this beautiful Boxwood here. This one is called Winter Gem. Look how healthy she is. So how do we fertilize? There's a couple of different ways. When you plant the plant the right soil is very very important and this is one of Monrovia's secret ingredients, its cocoa fiber and you can get this in your local garden center. The fertilization is really key because you want that plant to look good year round. If you want a quick result, use a water soluble fertilizer. It's normally blue. It comes with a little measuring cup and it tells you how much to put in a gallon of water. I like slow release. slow release fertilizers are normally polymer coated. They're little granules and they are heat and water sensitive and make sure you read the box. Normally half a cup about three or four times a year keeps them looking fantastic. Now some of you might be gardening Boxwood in containers and you're going to need to fertilize them a little bit more often because they are relying on you for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is Nicholas Staddon from Monrovia talking about fertilizing acid-loving Boxwood.
