fertilizing swiss chard seedlings

Zone Rome New York | Anonymous added on April 21, 2018 | Answered

I germinated swiss chard seeds indoors and now they are in three inch peat pots under a grow light. I would like to use Alaskan Fish fertilizer but I am not sure how to use it. How much liquid fertilizer should I add to a gallon of water so that I can water the pots from below? Finally, how often should I fertilize with the fish oil? Every time I water the seedlings? Thank you in advance for your help.

You can apply it just every 2 weeks in the small pots. You can also apply it when you transplant the swiss chard into the garden. The dilution ratio should be on the package, but if not, you could use 1-2 tablespoons per gallon.
