A bed gets hit every 30 days with 3 lb Peters, 1 lb 21-0-0, and the label rate of a dry soluble micro mix in at least 50 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin 1775
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.
Benjamin Franklin Poor Richard's Almanac1738
