Doggett’s Palm 8-2-15 can be used on all palm varieties. Many palm species that are not native have special fertility needs and are more susceptible to developing nutrient deficiencies and diseases.

Doggett’s Palm has been formulated and tested for low salts so that it will not injure palms. Be sure to follow all mixing instructions carefully.

Established Palms: The vast majority of palms are planted in sandy soils, which have a very low cation capacity. Established palms require fertilization a minimum of twice per year, ideally four times per year. Doggett’s Palm has an ideal ratio of nitrogen to potassium, which is essential for healthy palms. Doggett’s Palm has a slow release nitrogen which is important to maintain a continuous release of Nitrogen and reduce leaching.

8-2-15 Palm & Southern Ornamental Tree Fertilizer is formulated for the professional arborist. Because of its high Ureaform content it does not dissolve completely, but with strong agitation remains in suspension. Over half of the Nitrogen is derived from Ureaform. This unique Ureaform fertilizer releases its available Nitrogen over the entire growing season. Any not released during the first season will carry over to the following year. Ureaform is non-leaching. Bacteria converts the more soluble fraction of the Nitrogen so that 1/3 is released in the first three to five weeks, the balance over 6 to 12 months.

The lower the salt index per unit of plant nutrient in each ingredient of the fertilizer, the less risk of crop injury in periods of drought or with localized placement of concentrated fertilizer. DOGGETT TREE FERTILIZER has a low salt index.

Dilution Table

90% of feeder roots are in the top 12 inches of soil with the majority in the first 6 inches. They start well out from the trunk and extend well beyond the dripline in most cases. This is the area to be injected with DOGGETT’S PALM & SOUTHERN ORNAMENTAL TREE FERTILIZER. Soil injection should be 4 to 6 inches deep using an injector probe at 150 to 200 PSI.

Injection should begin out from the trunk and be spaced 2½ feet apart, injecting on a grid extending beyond the dripline. Apply 150 gallons to each 2,000 square feet. Following the grid method outlined, you should inject approximately 1/2 gallon of fertilizer solution at each point. Based on the 2 ½ ft spacing, this will apply 150 gallons of solution over 2000 sq. ft.

TO CALIBRATE your particular rig and its operator, we suggest you find out how long it takes to inject 1/2 gallon of solution into a bucket. This will probably take 2 to 4 seconds. Count off the seconds and use this same count and cadence while injecting the probe at each point in the soil.

Use dilution rate as shown in table (15 lbs. in 100 gallons of water). Apply the solution at the rate of 5 gallons per inch of trunk diameter.

Inject 150 gallons over 2,000 square feet. Space injection points at 2 ½ sq. ft. intervals, starting well out from the trunk and extending well beyond the dripline in unencumbered soils.

Example: Tree Trunk 12" times 5 gallons = 60 gallons of solution.
