Answer: Dear Tony,

You can choose from a number of fertilisers.

Acticote + Instant Booster for Fruit, Trees & Shrubs is a slow release fertiliser that can be applied in spring and autumn. It is ideal for all outdoor trees and shrubs and has added potassium for prolonged flowering.

Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food contains composted poultry manure, blood & bone, fish meal and seaweed. This product will also release nutrients slowly, enriching the soil as well as feeding the plant to promote good growth and flowering

Thrive Shake n Feed Plant Food is easy to apply providing the plant with all the necessary nutrients. It is applied in spring and autumn. As well as being a fertiliser it contains seaweed extract to promote a strong root system.

Any of these fertiliser would benefit your weeping cherry and magnolia
