Presentation: Mike Atkinson -- The Fun and Foibles of Fertilizer

There aren't many other issues as contentious as fertilizer in the gardening world. Everyone has their faves, others vehemently oppose them, and some are just lost. One of our most popular speakers, Mike Atkinson, will try to shed some light in plain language on this complicated topic by covering:

  • Overview of options
  • How do we really know fertilizer works?
  • Chemical and organic products including benefits
  • Unorthodox fertilizer options
  • Application guidelines
  • And a bunch more issues...

Everyone welcome! (free admission)
