Its either raining and cold or hot and dry.
I am glad to hear this is the case. I thought this to be so considering the nutrients are applied to the top portion of the plant and they do not settle in the thatch layer where many of the harmful fungi develop. It will be interesting for me to see considering this is all new to me.
