When should I begin to fertilize my plants?

When to Start Fertilizing

Fertilize your plants once you see their "true" leaves
sprouting. Dilute your fertilizer to half strength, at
the most, and feed the plants whenever you water them.
You want to use a fertilizer that will stimulate root
growth. This is important in herb gardening! Look for
a high number on your fertilizer, as the middle number
shown. That means it's good for root growth.
Something such as a 10-52-10 ratio.
