  1. Loved reading ur bio!! I’m a Christian who loves Christian music, too (Josh Turner & Scotty McCreery for starters–I know these two are more country). Anyway, I need to know if there is anything I can do to help our Red Bud Tree. It isn’t budding out in all its branches this year! Is there anything I can do to help it do better for next year maybe? We give it Fertilome Fertilizer twice a year.
