Question for Richard and/or sunfish.
Per instructions on your 28-8-18 fertilizer bag:
Option A: For constant feeding: 2 teaspoons per gallon of water
Option B: 1 tree in ground: 1/3 lb (3/4 cup)/ month from Feb-Nov
Pretty much all my fruit trees are in ground. During the summer I water them twice a week (8 times a month).
If I use Option B, do I divide the 3/4 cup into 8 portions, then mix each portion with, say, a gallon of water, pour that gallon around the tree, then just add more water with the garden hose until the tree is thoroughly watered? In my case, "thoroughly watered" means 1" of water accumulation.
Regarding Option A, I'm not sure what "constant feeding" mean. I don't know how many gallons each of my tree gets per watering session, I just let the garden hose drip at the base of the tree until about 1" of water piles up, then move on to the next tree. So I don't see how I can dilute 2 teaspoons per gallon when I water them.
