When you prepare the soil for vegetables…
Use 3 and 1/2 cups of fertilizer per 50 square feet. Then mix into the top 4 or 5 inches of dirt. If you can mix the soil with an organic matter, such as peat moss, humus, or compost, that is ideal.
When planting vegetables and/or tomatoes…
For new plants or seedlings, you can use the fertilizer 7 to 10 days after planting.
For single plants, apply 1/3 cup of fertilizer per plant.
For rows of plants, apply 1 and 1/3 cup on each side per 5 feet of row. You can also use 10 pounds on each side per 100 feet of row.
When using on potted plants…
For new plants, you can mix 2 cups of the long lasting fertilizer for every cubic foot of potting mix.
For established veggies, you can distribute 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of fertilizer per 4 inches of pot diameter into the soil around the inner edge of the pot.
