Fertilizer?

MNgardenmanJune 5, 2013

Last year I used fertilizer spikes around my pumpkin plants and I was wondering if it would also work to just use a granular fertilizer by poking a few holes around the plant and putting the fertilizer in the holes? If so, how much fertilizer would you apply around each plant using this method and how close to the plant? The spikes were 5-7 inches away from the plant.

Thanks

Read the side of the box to get an idea of how much to spread and other directions there as to the application. I doubt you would need to poke holes. It might concentrate too much fertilizer in one place since these are not spikes.
