How do I fertilize fruit trees?

Fertilizing Fruit Trees

Fruit trees use up quite a few nutrients to create fruit each year. To help your trees produce a bumper crop year after year, you will need to fertilize them. Most fruit trees should receive a dose of slow release granular fertilizer each fall. It is important not to over-fertilize fruit trees. Over-fertilized trees produce a lot of new growth and very little fruit.
