I was bowled over by two short notes I received today from a Mittleider Gardener in Australia. Read carefully to the end and I believe you will also be thrilled at what can be done using The Mittleider Method – Jim Kennard
“(1) Hi Jim, I bought 11 packages of your fertilizer about 6 months ago and I have been meaning to send you photos of the amazing results. (We’ll post them in the Gallery when we receive them)Â I’ll just list the plants that have never fruited before their hit of fertilizer. In some cases they only got one good sprinkle.
Avocado. 3 seedlings and 1 grafted…. now totally loaded with fruit.
Orange Trees that had well fruited before but now are laden.
Macadamia Nut that never had nuts. Now has about 5!
Passionfruit. None before and now has large sweet fruit.
Custard Apple. Originally was well fruited then gave up, and now has a good crop.
A Rare fern that always grew but was straggly. Huge and green now.
Normal vegetables and roses also thrived.
(2)Â I also forgot to say that I have used only 1 pack of your fertilizer for a whole vege growing season, plus fed all the fruit trees, with the exception of the mangoes.
Another I forgot to mention is the Paw Paw [papaya] that came up as a seedling and flowered but would never set fruit over about 4 years. So I gave it some fertilizer as I was going by and threatened it with extinction if it didn’t wake up to itself. I’ll include a photo of it too. Not a lot but they are there…
I live near Mackay, Queensland, Australia. It’s on the northern east coast. We are in the sub-tropics. We have 200 acres of hills!Â Soil is not too bad but there are so many stones that you have to use a fork to dig a hole.”
