INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONIFERS
Conifers that are planted in the ground aren't heavy feeders, however, conifers planted in pots need to be fertilized to keep growing and staying healthy.
If the soil is wet - snooze this action, we will remind you again in 2 days.
SELECTING THE FERTILIZER
You can use any fertilizer suited for garden plants / conifers or any balanced fertilizer suited for potted plants (some examples when it comes to NPK*: 10-10-10, 20-10-20, or 20-20-20).
* NPK: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K)
HOW TO FERTILIZE YOUR CONIFERS IN 5 STEPS

If possible, try to avoid getting the solution on the stems and needles
Continue adding the solution to the pot until it starts to run out of the drainage holes in the bottom
After about 1 hour, check that the pot isn’t sitting in water - and if needed pour off excess water
