Bioflora 6-6-5 vs Gro-Power Avacado & Citrus
« on: April 16, 2019, 06:12:46 PM »
I'm deciding between these two fertilizers for my garden.  Anyone has any experience with these two?

I use gro power, it has all the micro nutrients avocados need.  Never seen the other one.  For your first bag of fert maybe go with dr earth or happy frog type organic fert with mycorhize inoculant.

Here is my 5 year old Mantequillita.  Used cottonmeal, bioflora and lots of mulch to get it going. With this formula youíll get the most microbes and nutrients youíll need. Now almost 30í and itís one of the best West Indian hybrid avocado in the USA compares to Reed.

Iíve used both. I canít tell the difference. I feel like Bioflora has gotta have something in there thatís good because my dogs love Bioflora...little bastards love to eat it. So I keep buying Bioflora.

I just bought a bag of Bioflora 6-6-5.  Haven't used it yet, but I know JF recommends it, and I really trust him.  The only place I could find it in San Diego was up in San Marcos, called Nutrien Ag Solutions(formerly Crop Production Services).  If you find it somewhere farther south, let me know.  I live in Clairemont.

I am planning to drive up there to get it.  I lived near Mission Valley so it's a long drive.  I called Ewing Irrigation to see if they can order it, they said they don't carry that brand.

It was $27.50 for a 50lb bag.  I think that's a good price.  But yeah, the drive sucks.

No, I live in San Diego.  Not the Claremont in L.A.
I would get a bag of cottonmeal, but I don't think you would want to ship to San Diego.  What nutrients does cottonmeal supply?

Haha, the mice in my area loves to eat it too. I might be the feather meal that makes it smell like chicken. I don't know if I want to sprinkle it on top of the soil like you're supposed to. Maybe it's the animal droppings that's fertilizing the trees.
