I spent the weekend weeding and mulching my beds - I'd like to fertilize them with a spray on something, is there something you'd suggest? I scratched in Epsom Salts around lots of my plants, but i have an urge to do more - is this ok? What'a a good all around fertilizer?

I don't have any compost, but I am sure I could get some at my local nursery?! I've looked into starting my own compost pile, but really it's a bit much for me to take on right now - maybe when life begins to slow down a bit for me, I'll give it a shot.

I just mix the compost in with my mulch? (can you tell how little I know?) [grin]

No, just scratch it into the soil around your plants. [thumb]

What are you growing? A great liquid fertilizer is a fish based fert. Mix with water in the watering can and apply that way or for larger areas, you can buy those bottles that snap onto the hose.

The secret is the soil.

Personally I like Peters 20-20-20 for a good all around fert. It is water soluable and easy to use.
Scotts may have picked up the brand I am not sure.
