Today was the first day of fertilising the trees and this is what we are using. It is biological and comes in pellet form. We apply 4 kilos per tree and more on some of our larger trees.
The pellets are spread on the upper side of the tree at the edge of the tress canopy. The rains then wash the fertiliser down into the soil to be absorbed by the trees roots.
This is the only treatment we give our trees. There is no spraying or any chemicals applied to the Casa Margherita grove. After fertilising it is down to nature.
