Happy Frog Japanese Maple Organic Fertilizer (4-8-5) Finally, a fertilizer that’s blended for the unique needs of Japanese maples. Japanese Maple Fertilizer uses a lower-nitrogen formula that supports a natural tendency to grow in cool weather environments. This means less leaf scorch in summer—even in sun—and a smooth transition to dazzling fall color. A lower pH helps the roots take up the nutrients they need, and phosphorus and potassium deliver color illumination like you’ve never seen before. You’ll get all the brilliant reds, purples, and oranges that make Japanese maples the crowning glory of the garden.
Our Japanese Maple fertilizer contains premium organic ingredients like bat guano, cottonseed meal, feather meal and humic acid, a naturally occurring organic material that is formed when organic matter decomposes. Humic acid helps with seed germination and may increase the uptake of important micronutrients. Best of all, FoxFarm adds 20 species of beneficial microbes to help convert fertilizers into vital plant food and fight off disease. It’s granulated and easy to use, and it provides gentle, slow-release feedings all season long. Use 1/2 cup for every two feet of plant height, Spring and summer. Because Japanese maples have shallow root systems, mulch regularly and keep soil damp.
