flowering without fruit

I was told by Mr. Brown formerly of the Darwin Botanical Gardens, to keep fruit on, sprinkle potash about a metre around the base of the fruit trees, then soak it in.
I did this to my fruit trees at the time (1988), and had success...maybe worth a try.

Fantastic tip, Where do you get your potash? Do you simply burn some wood or do you get a fertiliser that is high in potassium?

I liked this blog entry on potash:

http://www.landscapejuice.com/2006/09/potash.html

It describes the benefits of creating your own with left overs. Unfortunately I would be arrested if I tried to do this in the city.

Hi Correy,

I just bought it at a nursery or woolies back then. It is Potassium and sulphate I think. Anyway, it worked very well and is quite cheap. Just look in Bunnings or Mitre 10...I am sure either should have it.

Cheers,

Barb(:

I get ashes from my neighbour's wood fire, but I only use them on acid soil, to balance the pH. Where I live (I am in the hills) the soil is fairly acid, but nearer the coast it is quite alkaline, so not such a good idea. A pH kit is quite cheap, and fun to play with!

Hay guys,sulfate of potash is used for extra growth and to help plowering of plants. But ash from fires changes your pH only and is detrementle to your plants, sorry.
