The Q&A Archives: Planting Garden Seeds

Question: When planting garden seeds, should fertilizer be mixed with the seed in the initial planting or wait until the plant is out of the ground and side dress it?

Answer: Tommy,

Either mix it into the soil well before planting or side dress it after the seeds are up and growing. If you mix it with the seed or place it in the planting furrow, the fertilizer will burn the tender young seedlings.
