Q: Is the Bio Flora the best choice for citrus tree fertilization using your care plan? If not, what do you recommend? Thanks!

Asked by: Laurie - 3/13/2021
A: Laura - Bioflora is the perfect Organic fertilizer to use. Well it is actually OMRI certified - the fertilizer equivalent to organic. Plus it is a great price. Plus plus you can use it on all your outdoor plants. Careful tho if you have dogs - they do love to eat it. So if you have a dog bury the fertilizer and water it in.

Q: When should I apply crumbles?

Asked by: Bob - 9/5/2021
A: We recommend ONE pound (about 2.5 cups) per inch of trunk diameter. Divide and bury in tree basin four times a year as follows: Valentine’s Day (mid-Feb), Tax Day (mid-Apr), Memorial Day (late May), and Labor Day (mid-Sep). Follow with deep watering.

Q: I have about 100 sq ft of herbs and vegetables. I use tank's fertilizer, EM i, and fish immersion with kelp. Do I need this too?

Asked by: Janet Rae Humphrey - 4/21/2021
A: We do recommend using an organic fertilizer like either Tanks or Bioflora four times a year. Tanks is a great product and easier to store between uses since they have the ziploc seal. Bioflora is more economical with it's larger quantities but can be stored in a container with a sealing lid.

Q: Is there an expiration on this product? Should it be bought only as needed, or can we prepurchase some, for maybe a years worth? Thank you!

Asked by: Mara - 6/3/2021
A: Fertilizer will eventually off-gas some of it's nitrogen, but it does have a fairly long shelf life for everything else if stored in a closed bucket or small trashcan. As an estimate, one 50 lb bag should be enough for a dozen trees for one year if you are feeding the trees following the Urban Farm Tree Care Program.

Q: I planted 10 Green Giant evergreens and there struggling and browning. Which BioGrade products do you recommend? I was thinking Crumbles.

Asked by: Todd - 5/17/2021
A: We recommend organic fertilizers like BioFlora Crumbles (local Pick Up Only) or Tanks SuperMix (pick up or shipping available). Pay attention to the weather as heat or wind can easily overstress and cause browning in our plants. Shade and or wind blocks might mitigate those stressors a little.

Q: Wondering why we want product that has calcium when that is not issue in Az . And still trying to figure out why product info says bag will feed 12 trees per year . The math makes no sense . Comparing now to offerings at Home Depot and summer winds

Asked by: Linda enger - 9/5/2022
A: Calcium can be an issue (we deal with blossom end rot a lot here) the calcium in the bioflora is bioavailable. The 12 trees per year is somewhat dependent on how big the trees are. We suggest 1 pound per trunk inch diameter - so if you have a 3 inch diameter trunk you need three pounds per feeding or 12 pounds for the year. Looking at summer winds and HD - make sure you are getting a complete fertilizer that is OMRI certified

Q: I have 5 fruit trees + two citrus trees. I got 3 of them from the Urban Garden 5 years ago :-)!! How many years would it take to use up 50 lb. bag?

Asked by: Jean Janu - 1/21/2023
A: To calculate your trees - fertilizer needs it is 1 lb for every 1 caliper inch, four times a year. For 7 trees, between 1 to 1.5 inches wide at the base for each one, you are looking at approximately 7x1x4 to 7x1.5 x4 for the first year or 28 to 42 lbs for the first year.

A: No. BioFlora crumbles are not toxic to pets. That being said, many dogs have been attracted to the scent and may dig or play in the crumbles if not buried.
