Efficient Tool for Watering Trees and Shrubs
by Charlie Nardozzi
Water and fertilizer is essential for healthy tree and shrub growth, however just sprinkling water and fertilizer on the soil surface around plants can be wasteful and doesnt get the moisture and nutrients to where the plants need it. Root feeding is an effective technique often used by commercial arborists to water and feed large trees. Now home gardeners can do it too.
The Root Feeder Irrigator is an environmentally friendly way to water, fertilize, and care for your plants. The lightweight, durable injection system has a steel tube thats easy to insert 14 inches into the soil around a tree or shrub. The tube has five jets to water the plant roots without any runoff or erosion. Its great for areas with drought or watering restrictions. You can also apply water-soluble fertilizers and soil amendments..
