Thanks for your comments. I use I can and as natural as possible. Always looking for better ways.


AaronTT,

What other natural element do you add, if you don't mindme asking?
I use a few different ferts, such as potassium magnesium sulfate, manganese sulfate, a formula that uses micro minerals without nitrating them; gypsum, bone meal, a natural citrus formula and rabbit manure and my own compost mix. I have a few other things that I wont mention, but those are a few of them that work well for the soil here. I based it on soil testing, to correct the many mineral deficiencies here in Florida.
