  • Spring fertilization?

    I have long been taught that fall fertilization is preferred over spring fertilization for many plants, but there are some exceptions. 

    We had a tough 2008 growing season with late summer drought and a windstorm that only added insult to injury.  Add ice and a generally windy winter and some plants are in need of a little energy boost. 

    Summer drought and early fall leaf drop (or the severe desiccation that many deciduous plants experience from the wind storm) means that stored energy may be low.

    Congratulations to Jim Swinford for his much-deserved induction into the 10th Region Boys Basketball Hall of Fame a couple of weeks ago.  Jim was inducted as a “contributor” for his years of devotion to Harrison County Thorobreds basketball in particular and to high school sports in general.
