Garden Doc Question
« on: March 03, 2020, 10:02:04 am »
Hi garden doc,

On another forum you mentioned in 2017 after a visit to EB research center that you were going to try 1 tsp Miracle Gro every week and then add in 1 tsp calcium nitrate every other week instead of the usual ‘snack’.     

How did that work out?  And is this in addition to your usual 1 cup strip of 10-10-10?  Or are you skipping the strip?

(Just to double check , was that 1 tsp or 1 tablespoon of Miracle Gro weekly?)

Did you  decide you liked one supplement over another?

Thanks for your insight and experimentation.

DEF, thanks for the question. First, with the strip I'm now using 1 cup 5-5-5 or 8-8-8. I like to go lean with the strip

I think overall the calcium nitrate is a better choice, I know some folks have a little trouble finding it in their area.
Why Google, when you have me?

Do you have anything on how you build your stands that your earthboxes sit on???  I have a bad  back and can not bend over anymore.  Would like to build what you have.  Any help would be appreciated.  I sure miss the old forum.

Thank you.
