Time to check on mango and avocado trees
More than halfway through February and it is time to watch your mango and avocado trees for their blossoms. Yep, the early mangos and avocados are ready to be in bloom, so it is the time to give your trees some nourishment so you will have a great crop this coming year.
I grow natural, so I use bone and blood meal for my babies, but there are some fertilizers that the big box store will sell you to feed your trees.
You have probably noticed some of the citrus are also starting to bloom. They should receive some citrus fertilizers. I find that citrus will eat almost anything and are not particular about their food.
I had a reader tell me how he fights “citrus greening” with his garden hose by leaving it out in the sun to heat the water, and then spraying the citrus tree with the hot water. This eliminates the Asian bug that causes greening. I haven’t tried it but you might want to.
