Joey,

That depends. Liquid fertilizer works quickly but the results are also gone more quickly. It tends to be a more expensive option in the long run but is good for getting a fast initial reaction, for correcting minor nutrient deficiencies such as iron chlorosis, and for getting new transplants off to a good start. Granular fertilizer is more economical, less labor intensive or time consuming in the long run, and in general a better choice for ongoing nutrient management.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
