in our tiny little garden I have 25 strawberry crowns growing happy leaves :) but I wonder if they need fertilizer? I'm pinching off flowers, reluctanty, in hopes that the roots systems will establish well and produce better fruit in coming seasons. do they need fertilizer?
I've got three tiny wintersown tomato seedlings that I thought I'd lost but appear to have survived! they have a few "true" leaves and are still just in seed starter medium. they might need some sort of food, too, as I think the medium is just spaghnum(SP?!) or peat moss or something non-nutritive?
what sort of organic fertilizer might I use for these plants? (or should I?) I have compost sort of working/decomposing but it's not ready yet as there's still lots to break down. and I just read somewhere on here a person saying "compost alone can't do it." what are thoughts on that?
thanks, all! :)
and a random question I keep forgetting to ask: we have four sunflower seeds. got the packet as a gift - they say they're a hybrid and "pollenless" IIRC - does that mean they won't have seeds?
