    Spring in Kona usually means the beginning of our rainy season and the days are longer and a little warmer. Longer, warmer, wetter days mean that most plants are putting out new leaves and many are gearing up to flower or fruit. Though not all plants are awakening from dormancy this time of year in the tropics, most of them could use some nutritional help. With rain becoming more regular, this is an excellent time to apply some fertilizer that will get watered in adequately.
