What confuses me is that one website says I should not fertilize AT ALL from March 15 - end of August while the other website says that I should fertilize year round.

I understand that there are different types of fertilizer and certain types are better placed at different times. My main concern is the lack of phosphorous in the soil around here and I plan to broadcast diammonium phosphate (18-46-0) which happens to seep into the soil very slowly of course. I also plan to use lime, most likely dolomitic 7:1 Ca:Mg at the end of the growing season.

Ultimately I want to come up with a solid fertilization schedule and also a system by which I can easily create fertilization schedules such that fertilizers don't interfere with each other or with other applications. Until I can even begin to accomplish any of this I need to work out the inconsistencies in information provided by different websites.
