As a veganic organic farmer I've been trying to educate people for years that with the advent of big corporations into organic farming now guarantees that organic produce bought at the market is more than likely not any healthier than non-organic. Each year these big corporations lobby and receive new additions of toxic chemicals approved for pesticide use. Plus, in the organic industry - is a rampant obsessiveness in using blood meal, bone meal, and feather meal as fertilizers. These products are processed from dead and diseased animals/poultry. Energy is energy - sterilizing it does not change the rate of vibration of that energy - so you are using a lesser vibration energy for fertilization.
I live, supposedly, in Zone 9B. In the high desert, at 3400'. Going by zone recommendations is a joke. I simply grow everything I want here, including citrus, avocado, blueberries - and fruit trees recommended for Zone 8. Common sense in placement is the issue. Blueberries for instance, go under 80% aluminet shade cloth.
Until all nurseries employ the Rootmaker systems of potting - I would not recommend buying anything that is potted. I myself, grow everything in the Rootmaker systems - trees, veggies, melons - the results are incredible. Not to mention you are using less water - in a smaller pot. A full grown semi-dwarf tree can stay in a 12 gallon Rootmaker pot for life.
