Citrus General Discussion / Re: Does my citrus have HLB?

Milorganite is 6-4-0, you could use that & add a few things to get close.

Things are going well here.  You can read up and see pics from the side-yard Avocado project here:

This past week, I transplanted 13 citrus trees to 4-panel RootMaker pots.  I have limited space in the flat part of my backyard, so I'm going to have to prune heavily to keep the trees in their limited airspace.  Here's a pic of the situation as of today.  I'm looking forward to observing how the citrus thrives in their new root-pruning pots.  Several of them were quite root-bound from just a year in their 5G pots. They all arrived via mail from Four Winds Nursery in very small 1 quart (or thereabout) tall, square-shaped nursery "pots."  I look forward to following your fabled Reed.




Everything looks great!

Wish I could order from Four Winds.  Much of Texas is under quarantine regarding HLB, citrus greening problem.

Thank you Radoslav and kumin. I was looking for latex paint but in France it refers only to true latex.
As you made me understand that latex also means acrylic it has been very easy to find.  :)

No, there are
Acrilic colours based on Acrylic resin
Latex colours  based on polyvinyl acetate
Acrilic Latex colours mix ?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Feijoa and fruit fly in S. Florida
« Last post by noochka1 on Today at 06:34:04 AM »
Hi all,

I have several Feijoa bushes I've grown from seed and which are finally fruiting this year.  Do I need to bag the fruit to avoid worms? 

Regards,
Scott

Thank Millet. I was hoping to stay all organic, but seeing that the lemon tree isnít responding well I will be switching over to conventional fertilizer as you suggested. Thanks for the fertilizer ratio. Good to know

Streets in many urban environments are analogs of mountain valleys  and urban inversion is  aggravated by atmospheric  pollution.

Wholly cow. 16,000 achacha trees? I can't even count that high.
I think it is an exclusive deal for the one orchard, they pack ship and even export. Not sure how they control others from growing them, maybe market is cornered somehow?
Edit, orchard is for sale and has a monopoly till 2035:
