Default Re: Fertilizer

I get my fertilizer in bulk at my local feed store. 50lb bags of urea is about $12. Other nitrogen is a little more. If you use urea water it in good so you don't loose a lot to gas. Potassium 50lb bags are about $15 called mutate of potash. Be careful if you have clay I hear it hardens the soil. Does great in my sand. If you don't have sand I would use the more expensive sulfate of potash. Go very easy then put more it's so easy to overfertalize with these strong %s.

I never ever use fertilizer on plants younger than 4' or so. Depending on the variety. I only give them manure and compost.

That's what I do. I have a lot of plants in the ground and don't believe expensive products or methods are nessarry. And I think I have been very successful for my zone.

Good luck.
