Suitable Feed for a Beech Hedge

John Kiely asked 13 years ago

Gerry, Can you recommend a suitable feed for a young beech hedge (2.5 years old) ? Should feed be applied now or in early spring ?

beech can be fed with a general fertilizer, such as 10-10-20, 18-6-12 or tree and shrub fertilizer in spring at rate of 30g per metre of row on each side. But make sure that there are no weeds on either side for 40 or 50cm.
