Keep the fertilizer 6 inches away from the trunk and broadcast it evenly over the recommended area. In May and June following planting, broadcast another cup of 21-0-0 around the tree. In early spring of the second season, broadcast 1 cup of 21-0-0 fertilizer over a 3-foot circle; again avoid contact with the tree. Repeat this again in April, May, and June. In year three, use 2 cups four times and in year four, 3 cups four times. After 4 years, fertilize the trees as if they were mature.
