Default Fertilizer question

Hi All,

It is getting time for me to replant my garlic.

I will probably be fertilizing the soil a week before hand
with this guy unless you guys tell me otherwise:

https://www.amazon.com/Jobes-Organic.../dp/B0034LPWVY

Would you just spread it on top, or plow it under?

Many thanks,
-T

when something says "Fast Acting" that means it
is best used when the plant is actively growing.

garlic will put out roots to start in the fall
and then may stay fairly dormant if the weather
is too cold to put up new growth above ground.

so, much of what you may or may not see with
foliage is really weather/climate related. the
main growth though will come with warmer weather
in the spring and that would be when any ferts
would be needed or applied. IMO.

of course, with a healthy garden soil you
will not need to apply constant fertilizers.

i apply my worm compost/worms in a garden
where i will grow the heaviest feeding plants
(tomatoes) and then rotate plant through that
for a few years before considering reapplying.

as i am trying to improve two gardens which
both have very poor garden soil the past few
years most of the worm compost/worms have been
going into those two gardens and i plan to
continue that for next season too. any place
i've been able to add the worms/worm compost
the plants have done better (mostly visible
the 2nd season in those areas). i use these
gardens for beans.

right now i'm waiting for the beans to
finish up so i can do some work on the
largest of the two gardens to make it easier
to work in there. there's some drain tubes
and pea gravel in there that i will be
removing as i don't think they're really
accomplishing much and i want to level it
out intead of having the slopes on the sides
that i currently have. it's too hard to
get some things done with those slopes in
the way. and the pea gravel can be used
for another project which is underway.

busiest time of the year...

Thank you!

"Fast Acting". Ha! Sounds like marketing
speak to me. I never trust those types of statements.
Nothing in marketing is what it seams.

When the time comes, do I dig it in or just pour it on?
