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 doesn’t 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 that’s 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. It’s great for areas with drought or watering restrictions. You can also apply water-soluble fertilizers and soil amendments..
