What Is The Best Fertilizer For Japanese Maple Trees?

What is the best fertilizer for Japanese maple trees? I recommend using a slow or controlled release type fertilizer. Commercially known as Polyon or Osmocote, these are the most common and both work very well on Japanese maples. We use both successfully in our Japanese maple production.

Should I fertilize newly planted maple trees?

Newly planted trees respond very well to fertilization. Either granular, liquid or stake type fertilizers can be used. Granular fertilizers can be worked into the soil around the plant at a rate of 2 lbs or 2 pints per 100 square feet of planting bed.

When's the best time to trim a Japanese maple?

If you prune selectively, almost anytime is the right time to prune a Japanese maple. With that said, these maples are most easily pruned in winter or summer. With the leaves out of the way in winter, it is easy to see the branch structure and, in turn, make the right cuts.
