      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

What is the best way to fertilize trees?

Recommended Posts

If you hire someone, they'll do "deep root" feeding, where they put the fertilizer down into the root structure.

If you use spikes, make sure you put them in the drip line of the canopy of the tree, alot of people put then right next to the trunk, which doesn't do a whole lot.

I use the Stakes and pound them in about 2-3 feet from the trunk.

Thats what JOBES instructions said to do.

If its a bigger tree you might need to get a bit further away

I use the spikes on my orange trees, usually put one on each side near the drip and push them down with a piece of wood rather than using the pounding cap on them as it does sometimes break the spike. Since using them the last 4 years i have had oranges every year. Actually have golf ball size on now.

You can also use a granular fertilizer like a 14-14-14 from a landcape supply place and spread around the drip line. A product like this is rated for 1 lb per inch of trunk diameter.

I poke a bunch of holes in the mulch into the dirt and then pour it in. If you have more than a few tree's this is the more economical way of doing it over the spikes. I have over 20 trees on my property that I fertilize twice a year and I get by with $36 for 80 lbs of fertilizer.
