Just put it into the pot. You can work it into the dirt some if you desire, but no need to do this. As you water the plant the water will carry the nutrients down to the roots with it. This is a slow release fertilizer.

First time to use this fertilizer and I was very pleased at the amount of growth and blooms on my newly planted container annuals (purchased from Home Depot too)! The results appear pleasantly soon and are so worth the extra step which is so easy. Use this product, and you will not be sorry.
