Fertilize your citrus NOW for more blooms, May/June for better fruit set, September/October for nutrients.
For citrus trees, we recommend fertilizing with Espoma Citrus-Tone – all organic
We like to cut knock-out roses by the end of January or first week of February, even if they’re covered in blooms. We prefer to cut before roses have made their first big flush of Spring growth. Just like the hybrid tea roses, knock-out roses benefit from a hard trimming, usually down to 24”. Begin fertilizing mid-February.
We recommend fertilizing roses with all organic Rose-Glo. Works great for lots of other blooming plants.
Trim your ornamental grasses straight across (no “cupcakes”) to 3”-4” from the ground sometime in January. Follow up with a small amount of fertilizer late February or early March. Be stingy – too much fertilizer speeds up the growth, making the foliage flop over instead of stand up.
Next week, my grasses will be cut back and ready for a new growing season.
For ornamental grasses, Plant Tone, Medina Growin’ Green, or HastaGro are all great organic fertilizers. Just remember – not too much!
