Before adding fertilizer to gardens it's usually a good idea to find out how your existing soil stacks up. Is it deficient and if so in what? Has it been over fertilized?

Google your local Cooperative Extension office, ask for an agent that can help with gardening questions and see about getting a soil test done. They'll help you figure out what you've got, what's needed for the plants you want to grow and how much. They're experts on local conditions and deliver science-based solutions.

Good luck!
