Should I fertilize euonymous shrubs this fall?

Normally newly planted shrubs do not need fertilization. Young shrubs need time for their roots to settle in as opposed to putting on top growth. And too much fertilization could interrupt this process. Excessive nitrogen can prompt weak top growth, which in turn may be just what some insects are looking for to munch on.
