mango fert. question

slane15October 6, 2011

I have a container Glenn in gritty mix. I have been using the forum/Al recommended FP 9-3-6 with PT 0-0-3 with tsp vinegar. My question is what part of the year should I change up my routine? What am I eliminating? Amount changes?... any advise would help. Tree is about 2 years old growing beautifully but just got it in May so I havnt seen it bloom yet. I want to make sure I get him to bloom.

Thanks everyone!

Sean.

I use potassium silicate every 3 weeks year round. I cut all other fertilizer on 10/15 until March.

Slane - I'm a big fish meal fertilizer guy - always seems so natural to me. Just saw a video where that guy from the Florida Fairchild gardens said, NO NITROGEN BASED FERTILIZER after fruit harvest time. Only micro-nutrient sprays to the leaves and POTASSIUM-based fertilizer....

Oops - I just got done a couple weeks ago with a major fish meal dig-hole-and-bury routine to many of my trees....
