Hi,

Quick question: anyone use granular (non-liquid / non-soluble) fertilizer? If so, how do you manage dosage? Any concern with over feeding if not using a soluble fertilizer? Dosage seems more challenging than when using a liquid fertilizer. I was looking at adidic ferts this weekend for azaleas, but most were non-soluble and I wasn't sure how to manage dosage, since most recommended X cups per Y sq foot of garden, rather than considering that plants might be potted.

Is it organic stuff? What's the NPK ratio?

How can a fertilizer be non-soluble?

Me too rock, but I think he refers to the little colorfull balls that belch out ferts with heat. O ya Osmocote maybe, the light bulb lit up, but I don' t use the stuff myself.
