Fertilize this shrub 3 times a year.
March 30, June 30 and Sept. 30.
Use a slow release fertilizer.
NPK numbers of 12-6-8 or 14-7-7 will benefit your shrub.

Sprinkle around the dripline of plant, do not mix into the soil.

On planting it is recommended to sprinkle one tablespoon of lime around the dripline.
