Question

Just used on newly planted trees, should I remove

I just planted two 6 feet tall dogwoods and a 10 feet tall Eastern Redbud. I waited about a week and then used the tree & shrub fertilizer spikes like i normally do on all my trees. Am i doing damage by using the spikes so soon after planting or is it ok to leave them in the ground. Thank you for all you help.

To avoid over fertilization, we suggest using Miracle Gro Quick Start on newly planted trees rather than these tree spikes. If the tree spikes were used as directed and kept sufficient distance from the trunks, you should not have any issues, but if you are unsure you may want to remove them.

Using the Miracle Gro Tree & Shrub Fertilizer Spikes on your evergreens in place of the Miracle Gro Evergreen Fertilizer Spikes will not harm the evergreens. You can use the Miracle Gro Evergreen Fertilizer Spikes next spring without a problem.

Miracle-Gro Tree and Shrub Fertilizer Spikes with Micromax Nutrients are registered for use around all trees and shrubs; however, if the plants to be fertilized are located in a flowerbed or around other ornamentals, consider using another fertilizer, such as Miracle-Gro Shake N Feed All Purpose Plant Food. Using these spikes around smaller ornamental plants may over fertilize those plants and cause permanent damage.

You were right not to feed the trees until they got a chance to get their roots established. This is a tree that likes acidic soil, so we would actually recommend the Shake 'n Feed Flowering Trees and Shrubs Plant Food once the heat of the summer passes.
