Plants are Plants.
As plants are plants, these tips and techniques about establishing and maintaining plants, fertilizing, and other planting tips hold true worldwide, EXCEPT if you live in a seasonal region, you must mulch up for winter, remove the mulch in the spring and if you are below freezing on a regular basis don't fertilize until spring.
A fertilizer that can feed everything?
In the early 1980's I was going crazy trying to feed our nursery plants and clients' plants with 15 different kinds of fertilizer. I wanted a food with which I could feed everything: plants, grass, palms, trees.
Fertilizer expert Jeff Durston and plant doctor Lynn Griffith formulated WALPOLE WONDER, "One Food Feeds It All." It does just that, and is eco-friendly by continually amending our Florida alkaline soil pH downward.
The fertilizer had no name until the late 1980's when a lawn maintenance customer came in. He had tried many types of fertilizers to green his customer's yard, had failed, tried our fertilizer and it worked! He proclaimed it WALPOLE WONDER, and the name stuck! Most people who have tried it are now using it, and most won't switch.
