Here's the backstory-
I have a pretty good thriving Spring garden. Moved last Fall, so had to start raised beds over- filled four 10x5 beds with 'Vegetable' mix. However I have to say the quality was not as good as I'm used too, so the plants are a little slower to get going and not as lush as Im used too.
We compost- but had to start from scratch too, so have only dumped one wheelbarrows worth a month ago. Second batch is cooking.
Pertaining to fertilizer, I use Osmocote Vegetable slow release 15-15-15, sprinkle every 3rd month or so. I also sometimes use HastaGrow liquid 6-12-6 every other month or so.
My question is: Am I wasting my time with the HastaGrow? Its a pain to apply (because I hand water with rainwater), much more expensive, and not as a good nutrient rating.
