Suggested application rates
- 100% coated to limit exposure to overdoses; minimizes root burn
- Consistent release eliminates repeated applications; saves time, labor and money
- Risk of phytotoxicity is significantly reduced compared to drenches
- Lasting color inspired retailer/consumer satisfaction

- Specific Crop
- Type of Growing Media
- Other Nutrient Sources
- Irrigation Type
- Rainfall Amount

Application Rates: The application rates listed are intended as a guideline in developing a routine program to grow blue flowered hydrangeas. Effective rates will depend on many factors including: crop condition, growing environment, cultivar type, timing of application, rate, root zone pH, fertilizer program and growing media. These rates may or may not apply to your area or growing conditions. It is the responsibility of the grower to determine the appropriate rate. Your rate may be higher or lower than suggested based on your growing conditions.
Apply product in the spring as soon as plants break dormancy or during any period of flower development. Broadcast product uniformly over soil surface. Avoid piling product against leaves and stems. Water in immediately after application.
Use lower rates for: freshly potted plants, high peat-based media,
lower root zone pH’s (< 6.0), low P fertilizer program,subirrigation,
other Al treatments.
Use higher rates for: older established plants, high bark media,
higher root zone pH’s (> 6.0), higher P fertilizer program.
