Default Palm and Shrub Fertilization

I just had landscaping and am looking for a company that fertilizes palms and shrubs with the appropriate type of fertilizer. The company I use only fertilizes once a year and uses a commercial fertilizer. I want a company that will fertilize three times a year. I don't want to wait until my palms are turning yellow because of stress.

Good plan! Ask the extension agent or master gardeners if this article leaves you with questions...
Box stores have 8-2-12 but the best formulation is Lesco, available from John Deere in Leesburg, or some delivery companies.ask landscaper to avoid putting lawn fertlizer under the drip line of the palms.
