Not sure if is too late but I put liquid fertilizer (lady bug brand called John's Recipe on everything other than grass. I also planted two duranta, two cape honeysuckle and a blue daze. Things are growing here in South Texas for sure and I figure now is as good a time as any for planting. Wish I had done it sooner. As far as how it is going to work out with the fertilizer I am not sure. Put it on some new babmoo that needs a boost and I am sure it will get things going. Here is a picture of my project. It is a wall 250 feet that I have been planting on for more than a year now. Plants just getting started: esperanza, fire bush, canna lilles, yuccas, two palms, sebago palms, blue weber agaves, agaves, duranta. Next spring is going to be interesting. Any thoughts on what would be native is welcome. Needs some color and I am thinking Vincas everywhere around the rocks. It has lots of shade so I am limited on what will thrive. Very little rain this October.

wow this is a huge project but exciting i'm sure...can't wait to see it in about a year or two. looks like you already have sago palms there. a few things off the top of my head is perhaps kalanchoes, sedums, texas sage, lantana. would banana trees be too over the top for you? mine thrive here in houston, sun or shade! they readily multiply as well.

"You get down to -10f , even on the west coast. I need to do a lot more research on subtropical vegetables from Asian countries, they would grow all year here under shade clothe. Chinese cabbage and pak choi are just a couple."
