I tend to wait the 4 weeks, but I haven’t seen a good study that showed root growth interrupted by feeding sooner. And yes, it’s OK to start feeding now.
Great, I will start making preparations then.
The big question is when to feed based on what kind of fertilizer (organic or inorganic) is being used based on the desired feeding regimen.
I plan on using a slow-release organic fertilizer (Biogold original) in teabags. I heard that I should apply a dose fertilizer every 4-8 weeks, depending on how heavily I want to fertilize my tree.
Does that sound approximately correct, or are there any special considerations I should account for since I live in the Bay Area?
