Do you pre-wet leaves of plants if applying Peters Professional 20-20-20 General Purpose Fertilizer to flower beds?

How long can it sit on leaves without burning? Is this recommended on plants that may become "leggy" from to much nitrogen?


When using Peters Professional 20-20-20 General Purpose Fertilizer for plants like flower beds, you can use 1 tsp per 1 gallon of water and apply using a watering can or sprayer. As long as you are not mixing the product too strongly, then it should not burn the plants you are treating. You do not need to wet the plants first before you fertilize. We are not sure what plants you may be concerned about growing too much, so you may need to research the specific plants you have for the best fertilizing recommendations for them and for your desired results.
