RE: tomato seedlings

Whats the npk on the fertilizer? Im thinking to much fertilizer. starters dont need a whole lot and earthgrow potting soil should have enough nutrients to last for a month. If i remember right seedlings dont use any fertalizer till there true leaves start coming out. They come prepackaged with there own food.
