0-10-10  Nitrogen-free fertilizer for bonsai
has for years been recommended by bonsai experts for manipulating growth in a number of ways:
> Spring feeding pines with 0-10-10 will help reduce needle length and candle extension, and encourages sturdy shoots.
> Mid- to late summer application of 0-10-10 will help flower bud set on spring flowering species such as azalea, crab apple, cherry, wisteria, etc.
> Fall feeding all trees with 0-10-10 will help to prevent unseasonal soft growth that will not withstand winter, and will increase cold hardiness of the roots.
Available in 8oz bottles

Complete micronutrient supplement for bonsai
Bonsai soil is virtually inert, containing little or no nutrient value. Similarly, most fertilizers contain adequate amounts of the three major nutrients (NPK: nitrogen phosphorus and potassium) but they usually lack the essential micronutrients. Although only needed in minute quantities, micronutrients are indispensable to a tree's well-being. Many of the worrying problems we see in our trees from time to time can be attributed to a deficiency of one or more micronutrienT.

MicroTotal contains eight essential chelated micronutrients: Magnesium (Mg), Sulphur (S), Boron (B), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Molebdenum (Mo) and Zinc (Zn), in a formula that is extremely effective when applied as a foliar spray, or can be used as a soil drench during normal watering.
Available in 8oz bottles
