    At the end of April - beginning of May (before flowering), when the soil has not yet warmed up enough, but the leaves have already blossomed, you can “cheer up” the trees a little. Dilute 5 g of nitroammophoska in a bucket of water (preferably rainwater) and spray the plants. Such foliar feeding will help to quickly compensate for the lack of substances necessary for plant development (nutrient components act faster through the leaves). Try to process the foliage from all sides. And it is better to do this in the evening, so that the fertilizer does not evaporate under the rays of the sun, causing burns.

    At one of our club meetings, a novice gardener inquired about the difference between nitrogen in manure and nitrogen in mineral fertilizers. Manure is an organic product of the processing of grassy mass in the stomach of an animal. This already partially processed organic matter is more easily absorbed by plants. But manure is not always the best option as a fertilizer: it may contain weed seeds, pathogens of fungal diseases, etc.
    In mineral fertilizers, nitrogen can be presented in two forms: ammonium and nitrate. It is better to use the nitrate form, especially in the spring, since the roots of the plant absorb this particular form of nitrogen. The ammonium form can only be used in summer (until mid-July), because it is converted into nitrate only by soil microorganisms at a temperature of +20...+25 degrees.
