If you’re going to plant a guava tree on on your property, it is important to know that they require much more nutrients than the average plant. Guava trees are considered heavy feeders, and they need fertilizer scattered from 30 cm away, up to the very top of their trunk base. Try to refrain from planting these trees in the late fall and winter seasons, due them thriving better in medium to warm climates overall.
- You should feed the guava tree once per month with about a half a pound of fertilizer during the first year.
- After the first year, you can decrease the feedings to three to four times each year.
- You want to start scattering the fertilizer a foot away from the tree and then work your way towards the base.
“Regular applications of guava tree fertilizer are needed to keep pace with this fast-growing plant in order to ensure the production of bountiful high-quality flowers and fruit.”
