Anonymous added on May 9, 2014 | Answered

I like your article very much, but it does not mention of what type and ratio of fertilizer needs to be used for seedlings. I use Schultz tomato soluble for everything, before true leave come out, at half strength then full strength. Please tell me what fertilizer type and method is best to estabilish good plants. I grow my plants in Jiffy 7.

You actually do not want to fertilize seedlings until they have 1 or 2 sets of true leaves, as the fertilizer can burn the new roots. After they get some true leaves, you can fertilize at half strength with a balanced fertilizer once and that should be enough for them until they are planted out.
