On The 4th Day of Christmas-Citrus Guy Style
Here we are, one-third of the way through the list. Everyday Christmas gets closer!
I have discussed my BOOKS.
I have told you where to buy CITRUS TREES
I have seeded your interest with SEEDS
I have enticed you with CAMELLIAS
Now, let's just say that you have bought any or all of those for your beloved gardener.
Those plants are going to need to be fed.
Today, I bring you some of the BEST fertilizers I have ever used.
(Please be aware that these affiliate links will take you to Amazon and I do get a small percentage of these sales.)
You will see a pattern to these products, they are all made by the same company, Espoma. You will not go wrong using ANY product by them, but I wanted to list the 3 favorites that I use all of the time.
#1-Bio-Tone Starter Plus-Bio-tone Starter Plus is an all-natural plant food enhanced with biostimulants, beneficial bacteria, and mycorrhizae. It contains hundreds of thousands of living microbes and both endo and ectomycorrhizae plus humates that have been proven to promote faster establishment, deeper roots, and superior soil structure.
I add this to all of my plants when I pot them up or when I plant them in the ground.
#2- Holly-Tone-Make sure your azaleas and evergreens have all the nutrients they need, use Holly-Tone. This environmentally friendly compound introduces 15 essential nutrients to the soil without containing any sludge or toxins. Because it offers a slow-release formula, this product will not burn your plants.
I use this on all of my Camellias and in a pinch, can be substituted or replaced with the next product on the list.
#3-Citrus-Tone- An all-natural and organic plant food enhanced with thousands of living microbes and is approved for organic gardening. It is perfect for all citrus, fruit, and nut trees and provides a safe, continuous, and complete balanced feeding. It helps in the development of the entire tree.
Of course, The Citrus Guy uses this stuff!! I actually use it on ALL of my fruiting plants. PLUS, like I mentioned earlier, I have been known to sub this with and for, Holly-Tone.
#BONUS-Tomato-Tone- It is perfect for all tomatoes, helps prevent blossom end rot and provides a safe, continuous, and complete balanced feeding. It is specifically formulated to produce consistently plump, juicy tomatoes.
If you are going to attempt to grow tomatoes, you owe it to yourself to have every advantage. This stuff works!
Well, there you have it, give the gift of fertility. You DO NOT have to buy it through these links, these products are available at any good garden center. While it is always nice to make a few dollars, the intention of these posts are to give you ideas for gift giving.
