Audience Materials for Webinar Season Two

Audience-acclaimed guides

Our notetaking guides are detailed outlines of our webinars. Many include plant lists, charts and diagrams you've told us are invaluable.

Index of current season materials.

I always print out your outlines and lists the day before the webinar and read through them. I really appreciate them, and that you stick to them. -M.M.-

#63 Click to download the notetaking guide for Making the Most of Fertilizers

In addition this week we offer you a tool to compute fertilizer use:
Our FertilizerCoverg/CostWeb63.xls is an Excel spreadsheet where you can type in your fertilizer and learn how much area it will cover and when to apply it.

If you do not have Excel, you may still calculate fertilizer needs using:
Either the pdf version of FertilizerCoverg which provides that information for some common fertilizers,
Or the long form fertilizer calculator.
(We recommend the chart over the long form. Although we developed the long form, we still feel when we use it like it's tax day and we are wading through tax form instructions!)
