Place plastic cap provided on top of spike.
Drive spike into ground around tree or shrub following the dripline.
Spikes should not be placed closer than 2 feet from the trunk or center of tree or shrub. If the dripline is closer than 2 feet, insert spikes 2 feet away from center of shrub or tree trunk.
Remove plastic cap, saving for future use. Continue to drive spike into ground 2 inches below the soil surface.
Use the diameter of the dripline of the tree or shrub as a guide to determine the number of spikes needed per plant (see label).
Store unused spikes in a dry place ideally in a sealed plastic bag.
Once per season (once in early spring, once in mid fall). Apply when the ground is soft and moist. If the ground is dry, wet before driving spikes. Use on evergreen trees to fulfill special needs of these trees.
