Time to fertilize your fruit trees

There’s a storm a comin:

  • In the next few days, the forecast for Southern California calls for lots rain (finally).

Time to make green:

  • Therefore, this is a great time to apply the first season dose of dry fertilizer around the root zone of your fruit trees.

Cost effective:

  • This is perfect, because that dry fertilizer can only get in the soil if you thoroughly water it in.  A drip line wont do the job.  If you have a number of trees and are hand watering with a garden hose, this can obviously take a lot of time and cost extra when it comes to your water bill.

Happy gardening!
