In the product description it says to Reapply every 3 months during the growing season. But under the DETAILS it shows longevity (weeks) 8, so which is it or what has worked best for you? This is my first year using it on all my vegies in my garden. I just want to be sure the BEST time to re-apply this product.

I roto till this product into the soil when prepping for planting. In my short Northern growing season, I MIGHT crowd re-application by a week , BUT while the fertilizer in the soil might be petering out, there's still what's being processed in the plant to consider...stick with the recommendations UNLESS your garden is showing signs of slowing way down, check for other reasons...pests...and reapply Read More
I roto till this product into the soil when prepping for planting. In my short Northern growing season, I MIGHT crowd re-application by a week , BUT while the fertilizer in the soil might be petering out, there's still what's being processed in the plant to consider...stick with the recommendations UNLESS your garden is showing signs of slowing way down, check for other reasons...pests...and reapply close to the label's suggestion. I'm no pro, but mostly take the Zen approach and let it be a while before over reacting. Remember, when this stops being fun, shop the Farmers market, that's fun too, and you can pick their brains for good advice relative to your area.

Rates for containers?

Anyone know how much to apply to containers? Vigoro should list container rates on all their bags -- very frustrating they have no container guidelines, there's plenty of space on the bag. I'd like to know the rates for 5, 10, 15 + gallon planters. Also, how often to reapply.

Answer: 
The formula to calculate the area(square ft.) of the container is: [ 3.14 x (radius x radius) ]
To get the volume of the container(cubic ft.) just include the container's depth:
[ 3.14 x (radius x radius) ] x depth
Calculate the radius and depth in inches. Then use a converter to convert square in/cubic in to square ft/cubic ft.

Answer: 
You are right, but there are square foot guidelines. I'm guessing that Vigoro realizes that there are a million different size and shape containers out there, with a million possible treatments. If I had nothing but the bag to go on, I'd measure the widest parts of each container for a Sq. Ft. total, (LXW), and treat according to Sq. Ft. directions on the package. Your outcomes will probably fall along Read More

If I had nothing but the bag to go on, I'd measure the widest parts of each container for a Sq. Ft. total, (LXW), and treat according to Sq. Ft. directions on the package. Your outcomes will probably fall along the recommendations of other companies like Miracle Gro. Like 1 tsp per sq ft, at the times on the back panel.
Good Luck and keep checking your post, as there are probably other good solutions on the way.

Answer: 
Those numbers represent the percentages of three ingredients that plants use to grow and be healthy. They are Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus. Almost all plants dig for these ingredients in the existing soil with their roots. Fertilizing (judiciously) supplements what the plants may or may not find in your soil, and amp up their productivity, size, color, etc. This fertilizer is sort of like a Read More
Those numbers represent the percentages of three ingredients that plants use to grow and be healthy. They are Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus. Almost all plants dig for these ingredients in the existing soil with their roots. Fertilizing (judiciously) supplements what the plants may or may not find in your soil, and amp up their productivity, size, color, etc. This fertilizer is sort of like a balanced multivitamin for plants.
There are natural ways to provide these nutrients that are easier on the soil and the plants; that's what "organic" is all about. Wise choice but lots more work, especially for someone with a small garden.
Application instructions are on the back of the package. Just like laundry detergent, it's easy to over- do. There are no fertilizer police...It's OK to start with less, observe the results and adjust as needed. Read Less

Answer: 
That is the formula for the mix. 12-10-5 = Nitrogen-Phosphorous-Potassium. Nitrogen for the foliage, phosphorous for the roots system, and potassium for the bloom. The calcium helps to prevent 'blossom end rot' that occurs on many vegetables. Personally, I prefer a more balanced formulation after the plant has grown. I am more concerned with the fruit part than the amount of leaves, although the leaves Read More
