a question about dynamite fertilizer
I mix a soilless mix recipe that I found here on garden web;
the 'recipe' is below...
2-3 cubic feet pine bark fines/mulch
5 gallons perlite
5 gallons sphagnum peat moss
2 cups slow release fertilizer (I use Osmocote)
Normally I Mix up my soil mix; when I do this, I pour the osmocote into the soil mix when I make it, and it feeds the plants the whole season.
Unfortunately some of the veggies (peppers and eggplants) don't like the Osmocote.
So I'd like to switch to dynamite fertilizer for veggies and flowers (found it online, it's the one in the pink bottle).
Is it slow-release, and can I directly mix it into the soil mix when I make it, and would this work?
I ask this because I used a fertilizer that was designed for applying to a plot (in the ground) and adding it a container mix, won't work, since it's not meant for that.
I really don't want to surface fertilize via a liquid fertilizer; adding the fertilizer to the mix, when I make it, is just simpler and easier for me.
