I put in the last of the fertilizer spikes today. Even put a few on the Evergreens. Now, I haven't given up on organic techniques, as a matter of fact, I plan to step them up this year, but after the weather calamities of the last 3 years, I figure my non-food plants could use a little desert to go on top of that good organic meal. Vegetables and other edibles will stay all organic. Also, I planted the new Moro Blood Orange today. I was quite unhappy with the state of the root ball when I pulled it from the pot, but I put it in some scrumptious soil, so I expect it to take off quickly.
