Easy to pound into the ground

We have hard rocky soil, but these spikes still went into the ground easily without breaking. I’m kind of amazed, because I thought for sure they might break. A few tips:- Make sure you wait until after a heavy rainfall so the ground is as soft as it can be!- Use a mallet, or a hammer with a large diameter head and a long enough handle!!

Works wonder for newly planted trees.

Newly planted tree. Very easy to use.

Best spikes I have ysed

Fantastic fertilizer spikes. Your trees will love them.

ThisJUST came out this spring,tree mstly deadused this NEW product,tree THRIVING

I hammered this in, the spike didn’t break using a real hammer! This product just came in the market this spring, PERFECT! I tried to hammer in the miracle grow spikes, they shattered! I tried miracle grow and jobes and my tree was still up on the cutting block as it was puny and everyone who came over asked why we had a dead tree in our yard! This fabulous product from Old Farmers Almanac came out this spring, I bought it thinking, well it can’t hurt, the tree is near dead anyway…my husband and I went around and hammered in a few of these old farmers almanac tree spikes and the trees w/ the spikes grew leaps and bounds over the trees w/ the other mentioned brands. Thank you Old Farmers Almanac for saving and doing an astronomical job on our trees!!! I busted some up (wasn’t easy) and put in my garden, my peppers, tomatoes, melons have never been so huge or tasty!! My friends peach trees are over and above astronomical! Awesome new product! I’m glad I waited until these came out over the spring before I cut down my tree. Thank you again!!!


Trees perked up


I bought this product knowing that I have used in the past. I waited weeks to see any difference came to nothing. I used the product as instructed by the manufacturer

Amazing Results

My mimosa tree has so many flowers on it. This is the best it has ever looked and my husband says it is because of the spikes. Definitely going to buy it again!

They will break. 2 of 6 broke on me

They said they will not shatter or break. Well, they do shatter and break. 2 of the 6 broke on me when it was putting them in the ground. So I had to dig a hole to put the parts in. If they did not break it might be a great it would be a great item. I will have to see if they are worth it before I really give my opinion on it for sure if they are good or not.
