Fertilizing Flowers

I just planted my second wave of flowers , today, at a building I maintain. The first wave was planted about 6 weeks ago and needs fertilizer. Would it be safe to go ahead and fertilize all the flowers- old and new?

If you choked a Smurf, what color would it turn?

I'd give my right hand , if I could be ambidextrous!

Yes, flowers should be fert on regular basis. Use balanced like 9-9-9 or 16-16-16 and slow release! The act of flowering consumes lots of P.

13-13-13 works great. Don't know if I would fert the new plants right now unless its organic/natural or something like Osmocote that is slow release. New plants need time to obtain a root system. I usually fert after about 3 weeks.

Before I water them with the tripple 18 I spread some Osmocote.
