4-0-2 FloraGreene™ Fertilizer is formulated to be a complete product for all varieties of landscape plants, ornamentals, tropicals, shrubs, and trees.
4-0-2 FloraGreene™ will absorb through leaf, stem, and cambium tissue and be distributed to the roots through the circulatory systems of plants, ornamentals, shrubs, and trees. While soil application is acceptable, it is formulated for foliar application.

Here is how much product you’ll use assuming a 6 oz/1,000 sq ft rate for plants and ornamentals (or 6” diameter sick tree or palm or 12” diameter healthy tree).
For five 6” (diameter) diseased trees, you will get 21 total applications:
6 oz/1,000 sq ft x 5 = 30 oz
640 oz/30 oz = 21 total applications
