    Have a new customer that wants me to fertilize his lawn and plants (hydrangeas, azaleas, hollies). Is it o.k. to do this type of fertilization this time of year? I normally fertilize in early spring. By the way, I live in Alabama.

    time of year is only relative to how fast of uptake you can deliver to the plants. If it is getting hot there, which I know it is, you need to move to slow release products and you'll be fine. A word of caution here though, those shrubs have drastically different needs than the turf. Investigate this thoroughly for your soil type before you apply anything.
