jimhardy in Iowa, why haven't you tried Dr Earth's alphalpha meal to south Florida sandy soil? LOL!

Is this a palm question?

It is a neutral palm question, have you seen land in south florida without palms? Not add, formulated by not native English speaker / writer maybe. But questioning if something can help to bring usage of synthetic frets down and use organics available.

My brother owns a landscaping business in Palm Beach. I'll ask him and get back to you. I didn't know this was a serious inquiry. I thought it was an ad as well.

I asked my brother and he said he actually never heard of it. He said most palms do just fine in the sandy soil. They often add topsoil for flower beds.

I applied 2 25 lb bags over my lawn and palms, what I can say, dusty shredded alfalfa, use face mask when dump it from bag to spreader, very dusty, wear long sleeve shirt and pants - stuff will stay on your legs/hands, or wash them often. They have soil bacteria infested so I was very concerned if there are harmful bacteria for life... I am alice still ;) first impression - waste of money! Let's see what will happen! By the way water it after spreading around so wind do not blow it right away, if you not mixing it into soil.
