Baby's Breath Plants
Q.

When is the best time to fertilize my seedlings?

Zone Oxnard | Anonymous added on February 18, 2020 | Answered

Hello I recently planted baby's breath flower seeds around late January but they haven't grown a lot in 3 weeks. It is about Feb 17 now and the seedlings are still small and some are beginning to turn yellow. I live around Oxnard, California, and the growing zone around where I live is 10. The soil in the tiny container where I planted it is a little soggy due to rain and there has been some frost and low temps of 35.5 degrees Fahrenheit. I bought some fertilizer to help the seedlings grow but should I wait for the temperature to rise or should I put the fertilizer on anyway?

Wait till the weather warms up and the seedlings are actively growing to fertilize.

The yellow leaves may be due to the cooler temps. Here is more:
