What type of liquid fertilizer should I use on more than 5 acres of sandy loam soil?
G.H., Springtown The best liquid spray, no matter what the soil type, is Garrett Juice Plus (to 1 gallon of water, add: 1 cup of compost tea or liquid humate, 2 ounces of liquid fish and 1 ounce each of liquid seaweed, apple cider vinegar and liquid molasses). The ingredients provide nutrients, trace minerals, organic matter, carbon, microbe stimulators, organic acids, enzymes and natural buffering elements. Last year, I moved from Dallas to Atlanta, Ga. My husband and I bought a newly built house, and I want to landscape the yard with herbs. What should I read to educate myself about organic gardening? An employee at an Atlanta nursery told me that organic gardening is expensive and does not work. I don’t believe that. I have two kids younger than 3, and I don’t want them playing near a chemical fertilizer or eating it in food we grow. S.R., Atlanta, Ga. An organic program works better than a chemical program, including from a financial standpoint. Check the Products and Places button
