Hello all. I've been using the same vegetable garden for 7 years now, and this year I strongly felt that we needed to build up the soil, as last year my plants just didn't grow as well as they had in years past. We tilled in a truckload of organic compost bought from a local garden center. The gentleman there also suggested tilling in some fertilizer, and my husband ended up getting 12-12-12 and putting that in.
Several weeks have gone by now, and I'm noticing that my leaf lettuce seeds are not sprouting.. at all. I never have a problem growing lettuce.
Did a little research today and discovered that this fertilizer is not good for flowering plants! I grow tomatoes, peppers, green beans, zucchini, cucumbers, etc every year! Am I doomed?
I know now that I should have researched this in depth before just dumping whatever on my garden. Is there anything I can do to help my mistake?
Thanks in advance for your help. We rely on my garden all year long! Hope it's not ruined.
