Planting New Containers (indoors or out):
Fill the container with a premium potting soil or professional growing mix. Then, incorporate 1 teaspoon per 6″ diameter of container or 1 tablespoon per square foot of soil.
If you are maintaining an existing container, first water thoroughly, allowing the water to be absorbed prior to feeding. Then work the plant food and a little compost (if available), carefully into the soil around your plants.
Preparing new outdoor beds and gardens:
Mix 1lb. (3 cups) of plant food per 1 cu. ft. bag of compost or any compost-based planting medium. Apply at a rate of 1 cu. ft. of compost per 5 square feet of garden in either the early spring or late fall. Work into the soil to a depth of 3″ and water thoroughly.
Top-dressing established beds and gardens:
Combine 1lb. (or 3 cups) of plant food and 1 cu. ft. of compost per 10 sq. ft. of garden as early in the season as possible after the last freeze. If your soil has already been amended with compost, just apply plant food at the same rate of 1lb. per 10 sq. ft. of garden, again as early in the season as possible. Apply again in mid-season if needed.
