Walter Pall's main blog about bonsai and his work with trees from day to day. Lots of good pictures of good trees and lots of valuable information about bonsai.
Walter,I have been wondering - how do you fertilize your trees? Since you have so many trees and they all seems very healthy, do you have a efficient approach to fertilizing? Or do you just do them all by hand?Thanks,Aaron
Aaron,waht's the big deal about feeding?? I purchase whatever is on sale at garden and agricultural supply. I add the feed to my watering can and feed EVERYTHING about every ten days or two weeks during the active vegetation period. There is no need for anything else. Feed cakes are absolutely superfluous and have many negative effects.Walter
I was just wondering if you had a quicker way of doing it... I am impressed that you fertilize all of your trees by hand!
Hi Walter,Are there any exceptions to your fertilizing regime - specifically do you adjust at all for plants like azalea, or for other fruiting or flowering plants? Or are you consistent, feeding all plants a balanced liquid fertilizer every 10-14 days throughout the growing period, regardless of species or time of growing season?Thanks.Cam.Canada
Cam,i know it's hard to believe, I treat all trees the same. Azaleas, young trees, old trees, broadleaved trees, conifers, recently repotted trees. collected trees right after collecting, tomatoes, terrace flowers etc. All the same. In October a very well known gardener was here and said: " I have never seen so many so happy trees in one place".WP
