Chelated feeding

gnappiMarch 10, 2011

On advice from someone who knows about Carambola I began to feed my Carambola Chelated Citrus food. I also have some Chelated Palm food and the ingredients are almost identical. Is there any reason not to use it? I don't have any palms ans don't want to throw it away.

Oh I am told 2-3 times a year for foliar feeding is right is this so?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It mostly depends on your soil. It looks like the University of Florida is recommending 4 to 6 times a year for high-ph soils (like we have in Tamarac):
Trees growing in high-pH or calcareous soils should receive 4 to 6 foliar applications per year of a micronutrient mix which includes zinc and manganese.If you have deep sand, you'll probably be fine with a granular application.
