Fertrell Specialty Fertilizers: Berry Mix & Holly Care

Berry Mix is a unique Fertrell product used in berry fertility programs. Berry Mix is effective when used on blueberries, strawberries, and all brambles including raspberries, blackberries and black caps. It is a blended plant food specially designed to grow more, bigger, and tastier berries. It has an analysis of 4-2-4, with added Sulfur, Boron and Zinc. It works in most soil types and is safe and easy to use. Additionally, Fertrell’s Berry Mix can be certified organic, but please contact your certifier before using.
Berry Mix is applied in early spring to get berry growth started off right for the season. Typical spring application rates are 4-6 lbs. per 100-foot row, depending on the type of berry. Berry Mix is also applied late in the season, after harvesting, so that nutrients can be absorbed in the plants’ roots preparing the them for heavy fruit production the following spring. Typical late season application rates are 6–10 lbs. per 100-foot row, depending on berry type. Information about the complete Fertrell Berry Care Program is available in our Farm and Garden catalog or by contacting one of our agronomists. It is especially important to note that blueberries, which thrive in acidic soils, require additional amendments to maximize production.
