I live in zone 7. I would like to apply long lasting fertilizer granules now, before I mulch my flower beds. Is it too early to fertilize?

If you use a coated or time release pelleted fertilizer, you can feed now and then lay down your mulch. It takes a week or two for the fertilizer to dissolve and by that time your plants should be growing well and be ready for the fertilizer.
