There seems to be two camps on this topic.
Has anyone tried using both organic and chemical fertilizers together?
Do chemical fertilizers reduce the microbiome in and of themselves, or is it the lack of organic material that causes the reduction? Both make sense to me.
I agree that organic creates a healthier environment for the tree, but have run into situations where I can’t find what I am looking for in organic form, see the great NPK debate (Do you really need low N fertilizer).
I have a dwarf pomegranate that flowers each time it is fertilized (Dr. Earth 5-5-5).
