This Peaceful Valley Organics specialty blend was designed to be used when planting bare root trees, grape vines, cane berries, or any other dormant plant. Unlike other brands of tree fertilizers, our Organic Primestart Booster Blend is crafted for the specific needs of bare root plants. Made with 100% organic ingredients of the highest quality, our fertilizer has no synthetic chemicals and no cheap fillers.
Primestart has a generous dose of long-term phosphorus because this nutrient is essential in the root zone at the time of planting. Since the phosphorus is slow-release, it will also promote healthy flower production in the spring.
The nitrogen in Primestart is lower than other fruit tree fertilizers such as our PVO Orchard and Vine Mix. This is because when your bare root trees are dormant, they do not take up nitrogen from the soil. The nitrogen that we have added to the Primestart will release slowly so your trees can use it when they start to wake up in the spring.
Our 3 lb bags are the perfect size for one bare root tree, or you can use half a bag on blueberries or grapes. No need to measure! For larger quantities of trees, we also sell 30 lb bags of Primestart.
This blend provides just what your plants need. It has small amounts of all the major nutrients, in combination with humates and Mycorrhizae.
- Contains soft rock phosphate, fish bone meal, feather meal, gypsum, sulfate of potash, azomite, kelpmeal, humic acids, and mycorrhizal inoculant.
- Use one 3 lb bag per bare root tree
- Grapes and blueberries add 1 lb (2 heaping cups) per plant
- Cane berries add 3 Tbs per plant, strawberries use 1-2 Tbs per plant.
Spread near the plants roots, as you back fill the planting hole. Keep in mind that it is still important to amend the entire back fill soil with some compost, as you normally would.
