an't believe every thing you read.

A foliar application of a complete fertilizer with trace elements works very well every couple of weeks.

Otherwise the use of a slow release like Osmocote or Nutrcoat in the spring will produce good results too.

Heavy use of nitrogen is not good so I would stay away from the over use of granular N-P-K types.
