time-release (or controlled-release) fertilizer is like taking a vitamin tablet. If we always ate a perfect, well-balanced
diet, we wouldn't need it. Unfortunately, few of us eat as we should. As a result, if we didn't supplement
our diet, we would be deficient in certain vitamins and minerals.
By the same token, when
fertilizer is broadcast around trees, there's no way to know how much of it reaches the trees' roots. Using Nutri
Pak solves this problem because it's placed in the hole alongside the tree's roots.
Pak has been specially formulated for trees and shrubs (16-8-8). It comes in a plastic package with micro-pores that
allow the fertilizer to be released into the soil at a controlled rate. The contents (NPK) are dissolved over time by water
vapor entering the package through these micro-pores.
Nutri Pak comes in two strengths:
One supplies key nutrients for one to two years, the other for three to five years. During this period trees usually
experience an increase in growth rate by up to 25 percent.
Nutri Pak eliminates the danger of burning the roots of young trees. Best of all, it doesn't contaminate
ground water and requires no measuring, mixing or clean-up.
