    wait until after a good heavy rainfall, that's why i always time my fert apps w/ get everything into the rootzone faster.

    I always tell them to water that evening first then wait 24 hours.

    For fertilizer? As soon as you get out of the 16 month old's way. As long as there isn't a pesticide in it, it is safe. If it makes you feel better, then water it first, but then make SURE it is dried first.

    Read the label. All fertilizer, pesticides will have a re entry period. Do not follow any advice other than on the label...its the law
