Adding minor elements ‘how to’ ?
« on: February 05, 2018, 11:03:34 PM »
Instructions say how to mix it and note to spray up to tree runoff. Are they talking about the ‘dripline’ Of the tree and if so, I assume add it directly to the soil, is that correct?

They mean to spray the leaves until the spray "runs off" those leaves.
The rate application is different for foliar compared to soil drench. Good to fully understand directions before applying either since you could do damage if done incorrectly.

Awesome! Appreciate the clarification. The directions were rather short and ambiguous

It’s hard to overdo the soil drench here in the Redlands due to rocky alkaline soil.

Hey man, it was good to meet you briefly when I dropped off the amber jack to ya. Sorry I had to jet, but newborn at the house has a lot of my calendar time slots booked up these days. Hopefully we can get together and bullsh*t one of these days. We’re building the house 3 blocks south of Knausberry on the corner, so we’ll be neighbors
