nitrogen level for vegetable gardens?



which veg are you growing?

Nitrogen is good for leaves eg brassicas. If in doubt use a general fertilizer.

I think these three matching questions are of the "homework" type. They would all need an essay to answer them.

yes i did wonder but if there is a specific veg being grown then I'll try and help more.

Thanks for the responses. I just moved into a house and tested the "garden" spot. It tested very low on EVERYTHING. I plan on growing tomatoes, turnips, spinach, oh heck, whatever i can get to grow in this terrible soil. lol

I would generally improve the soil by digging in soil improve or used ushroo compost if you an get any. I also have used grow more granules as well as fish blood and bone meal.
however carrots need a poorish soil or they fork and split.
growing beans & peas will improve the nitrogen levels naturally too.

thanks seaburngirl, i'll look into it. i would rather use natural methods to improve the soil than a commercial fertilize (sp)

Annoying isn't it! I eat my breakfast toast at the computer and I blame crumbs getting under the keys. Luckily the last "sticker" I had was the k and we don't use that one a great deal.
