Fertilizer for your vegetable garden
Posted on: June 17, 02
To give your seedlings and transplants a "jump start," ensure phosphorus availability in the cold soils of spring by banding super phosphate (0-20-0). To do this, make a 3-inch deep furrow (for seed) or a 6-inch deep furrow (for transplants) in the planting area. Into this furrow, evenly distribute 1/2 pound (1/2 cup) of super phosphate (0-20-0) per 40 linear feet of bed. Cover the band of super phosphate with at least 2 inches of soil since it can damage tender developing root systems.
