Fertilizing

There are several ways to fertilize, choosing which way is easiest should chosen by the way you water.

Hand watering

If you hand water you can use a fertilizer canister that connects to your hose end. This will feed your plants every time they get watered, and keep them blooming all summer long.

Sprinklers

 If you use a sprinkler or a sprinkler system a granular slow release fertilizer would be best. Once a month sprinkle throughout your garden and the water does the rest. Every time the the plant get watered just the right amount of fertilizer is released.

Drip Irrigation

 If you use drip lines the best is to use the slow release fertilizer listed above. The only difference is you should mix the fertilizer into the top few inches of the soil. This allows for the moisture in the soil to activate the fertilizer.
