Today was a perfect day to fertilize the trees. To be clear, cool and overcast is perfect weather for this gardener. The trees don’t give a hang. The recent storm was breaking up so conditions to work in the garden were great. All the trees were given their 1st feeding of the year. This will be repeated every three month (approximately – if I remember) during the growing season.
The boysenberries were fertilized with the same fertilizer. The recommended schedule for the berries is every two months. The canes were purchased last February as bare root stock and produced one berry. This season is off to a great start with several buds on the year old canes.
Gardner & Bloome is the organic line from Kellogg. If this is junk, let me know; but it’s what I’m using for the time being.
Along with the boysenberries here’s the list of trees fertilized with Gardener & Bloome today:
Granny Smith Apple
Pink Variegated Lemon
Rio Red Grapefruit
Robertson Navel Orange
Santa Rosa Plum
Satsuma Mandarin Orange
