I'm sorry but another 5-1-1 Question...

jefferzzzz(9)March 31, 2011

I am new to gardening (did have a garden last year) but had minimal results. I am trying to go back and learn from scratch and do this the correct way. I did decide this year to do a mixture of in-ground and container gardening.

I understand most of the information here as presented, but do have a question about the optional controlled release fertilizer that is used in the 5-1-1 mix. How do you know which type (15-15-15 etc..) to use? And how much?

I guess I am on information overload there is just SO much information available here... So sorry if this is answered somewhere, I just could not find it. Thank you in advance!


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Nevermind I figured it out... This thread can be deleted if a Mod reads this. (I don't see any way for me to delete it myself)
