Incorporate fertilize into the soil several inches deep for annuals and vegetables. For perennials, work fertilizer lightly into the soil around the plants. Plants need the most nutrients when they are growing most rapidly. This occurs earlier for spring plantings of lettuce and other greens
All dry fertilizers should be worked or watered into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil with hoe or spade work after being applied to help the fertilizer leach down toward the plants’ root zones. If your plants are already growing, cultivate gently so that you do not damage any roots.
Tip: Don’t apply liquid fertilizer at the same time you plant.
Use a spading fork to work a dry granular fertilizer into a new garden bed.
Using a cultivator, gently scratch the soil beneath plants with roots growing close to the surface.
Liquid fertilizers can be applied with a watering can.
Using a cultivator, gently scratch the soil beneath plants with roots growing close to the surface. Apply a dry granular fertilizer and water thoroughly. Because roots may extend several feet beyond the drip line, be sure to spread fertilizer out wide enough to reach all the roots.
