Treating Trees With BioVam
Step 1: Determine where the drip line is for your established tree.
The drip line is on the ground around the outer edge of the leaves on the tree. In the picture on the left, a white pvc pipe depicts the location of the drip line. The white rope on the ground depicts the drip line around this tree. Most of the active feeder roots occur in the drip line around a tree. Probe holes will be made in the ground every foot in the drip line (denoted by the flags and the red tape on the rope) by an earth digger bar and one teaspoon of BioVam will be put down each hole.
Note: If your tree is recently planted, the roots will not be very far from the trunk of the tree. I this case, make the probe holes closer to the trunk of the tree where the roots are growing.
Step 2: Mark the Earth Digger Bar with tape. Put a piece of tape around the Earth Digger Bar about 8-12" up from the pointed end of the bar. This will be your guide as to how deep to make the probe holes around each tree.
Step 3: Using the Earth Digger Bar, poke probe holes 8-12" deep every foot around the drip line as depicted by the pictures on the left.
Step 4: Put one level teaspoon of BioVam down each probe hole. The object of all of this is to get BioVam in contact with the tree's feeder roots. Since BioVam will not filter down through the soil from the top, we make probe holes around the drip line down into the ground where the most active feeder roots are located.
If you would like even better coverage of the roots, or the tree has only been in the ground for 1-2 years, make another circle of probe holes closer to the tree trunk (depicted by the rope closer to the tree) as shown in the picture on the left.
Treating Trees with biosol forte 7-2-1 and Planters II trace mineral fertilizer.
Biosol forte 7-2-1 organic fertilizer and Planters II trace mineral fertilizer can be applied from just outside the drip line to the trunk of the tree. A single application per year will suffice. In addition, it is a good idea to apply lime (not dolomite lime), gypsum, and soft rock phosphate along with a little iron sulfate once a year. This will insure you have calcium and phosphate presence to grow high brix plants.
Treating Trees with Soil Life Tea for Frost Protection
Step 1: Brew up some Natures own growing system Soil Life Tea and add Yucca extract to the tea. Dilute 1:5 in water to make 1.5 gallons of diluted tea. Wet plants down with the tea. When late frosts come while trees are in bloom, the plants will be protected from the frost.
Step 2: Spray the tree down so it is wet with the Soil Life Tea + Yucca extract added. This is all it takes to protect the tree from late frosts when the blooms are on the tree.
The Yucca Extract added to the tea will foam up as shown in the photo to the left. Yucca makes plant cells more permeable to water and nutrient uptake. This makes it possible for brix levels to rise in the plant while blooming. See our Pear Tree Exhibit for pictures of frost covering leaves and blossoms without damaging the blossoms.
Supercharge Tree Root Systems with Soil Life Tea.
Step 1: Brew up some Natures own growing system Soil Life Tea and add Yucca extract to the tea. Dilute 1:5 in water to make 1.5 gallons of diluted tea. Wet plants down with the tea.
Step 2: Make probe holes around the drip line every foot that are one food deep. Divide the distance in half between the drip line and the trunk of the tree and make another set of probe holes there.
Step 3: Spray Soil Life Tea down each probe hole until it foams at the top of the hole.
Step 4: Spray the area from the drip line to the trunk of the tree with Natures Own Growing System Soil Life Tea. This will allow the bacteria and fungi in the tea to interact with most of the tree's feeder roots.
