The Webster Deep Root Feeder is excellent for deep root feeding with granular fertilizer. This vertimulcher is used by professional arborists to feed trees with granular fertilizer. It comes nearly assembled and you can have it up and running in minutes. The auger drills down into the soil and right at the root zone, as the auger retracts a measured amount of fertilizer drops down in into the hole. Then it can be wheeled over to the spot for the next drill hole, and so on around the tree. Deep root feeding is essential for a healthy tree and your customers will be thrilled with the results. Easily fits into a back of a pick up truck and one man can lift it when it is empty.
