For fertilization of the acorns that we are growing and even the Mountain Laurels, we won't need to put anything on them until they probably show some top growth. What we are going to use is an organic, it can be used as fertilizer. It is a very low yield which will not likely burn the feeder roots once we get some feeder roots. It can be used on follier basis, can be used on transplants, can be used on cuttings and even soil treatments but I like to say we are going to rely the fertility of the potting soil we planted them in to produce enough fertility to get the roots going. Then we see growth, we are going to try to accelerate with extra fertilizer.
