Re: What is the best fertilizer for bananas?

I have 2 AeAe that are about 6ft. and a Black banana. Hoping I can find some fertilizer to pick up locally. That way I can get hubby to pay for it, lol.

Re: container citrus

My improved Meyer is somewhat prone to scale as well. Horticultural oil helps a lot though.

Re: container citrus

I'd recommend Lemons, Limes, and Kumquats. Those will give you lots of useable fruit. I also have grapefruit, oranges and mandarins in pots, but they really don't produce enough fruit to make them...

Re: Sugarloaf Pineapple

I had a sugarloaf fruit in a 1 gallon pot, it was a pretty small fruit but tasted great. Pineapples don't need much soil to grow, but the plants can get pretty wide, they love to jab you as you walk...

Re: Dibble for transplanting.

Inventive!

I'm lazy, I just use two fingers to make my dibble hole and transplant the plugs into a 4" tall square pot, then about a month later into 1 gallon pots.

Re: Ponderosa Lemon!

My Ponderosa has never grown very fast, either. I had 1 large fruit on it last winter, and it did get bigger this summer, but I wouldn't call it a fast grower.
You might try the Citrus Grower's...

Re: Photos from IAS show and sale 2011-Part 2

You like those Caladiums, don't you?
I grew those one year, and really liked them, but they only lived 1 year for me, although I brought the pots into the greenhouse for the winter.

Re: Is their a Chook doctor in the house?

Chickens are attracted to the color red, that is why food dishes and waterers have red on the bottom. Once the girl heals the others will leave her alone.
