comment What are the main benefits and cons of using manure?
@Shule - no apology necessary. I used organisms because its non specific, just like 'microbes', though that latter term is generally taken to mean bacteria

comment Why has my orange tree turned yellow and stopped bearing fruit?
Couple more questions - have you used weedkiller in the area in the last year? How long have those stones been in place? And what's your weather been like this autumn/winter- warmer than usual and very wet? Or colder than usual and very dry?

How long have you had the tree and can you check underneath the leaves, see if there's anything there that shouldn't be

@GrahamChiu - if your alterations completely change the nature of your question, best to ask another. If you just want to ask something additional, you can do it in the form of comments here, and I'll edit my answer to suit

comment What are the main benefits and cons of using manure?
@Shule - 'microbes' would be included under 'organisms' and also 'bio diversity'... and note there are both good and bad 'microbes' or bacteria in manure.... and soil come to that.

comment Rose doubt - is this a fungus?
@Rosie - that'll only work if its in the ground, it can't establish a great root system stuck in a pot, though the fungi might help it recover from its current condition, possibly

comment Tulips are growing far too early
@Rosie Not blind, no, if they've not flowered already, and winter has arrived and stopped them, they'll wait and flower this year when conditions are right.

comment How to know how much weight I need in a lawn roller?
Yea, probably would work, but the soil needs to be fine, or sifted. And you'd need more in the hollows than you would on the bumps, obviously. You could brush it over afterwards, possibly, or you might have to rake it afterwards, I know its a pain, but a roller isn't going to help... If you had a sit'n'ride mower, constant mowing would sort it out eventually, I've seen that work before over time.

comment What is special in commercial off-the-shelf liquid nutricient mixtures?
@Escoce - I know that in orchards they do supplement calcium, but if you're just growing one fruit tree in the average garden, there shouldn't be an issue.

comment What is special in commercial off-the-shelf liquid nutricient mixtures?
@Escoce - the calcium thing; usually, the problem is insufficient or erratic water supply, which disables the plant from taking up enough calcium, rather than a shortage in the soil itself, though it depends on the soil in a particular region.
