advice on garden fertilizer

Never just scatter any fertiliser on surface.  Always scratch/tickle it in

Liri, no we will win this.  The run rate would have slowed and the inituative given back to S Africa.  Sport is about kidology too  !

Olives grow well down here...planted widely.  Think a long early hot spring and summer is required for the fruit though.

For planting mix in with planting hole,,for feeding anything and everything.

No...not different kinds of fish blood and bone.  It is a general fertiliser, like a multi vitamin.  You can buy specific fertilisers....nitrogen for lawns, potash for fruit bushes, etc. ....but generally a balanced fertiliser is fine for most things Baza

A spray or two of epsom salts helps good health....for koreana too

Firstly, fertiliser and compost are completely different things....bit like your food.  vitamins only or food with vitamins in!

Baza, the very best fertilizer is granular fish blood and bone.  Organic, reasonably slow and sustained release nutrients, good for soil and plants. Bit early right now for veg ......I would apply in late Feb early March. it is then soluble/accessible to growing plants a few weeks later.  One application is usually enough.
