I have always fertilized my existing perennial (clover) plots early in the spring. With this rain that we've been getting I'm wanting to get it put out. I went to the local co-op today and they are mixing me up some 18-48-62 for the plots and I'm picking it up tomorrow. It looks like there is a break in the rain so I can get it on in the next couple of days and there is more rain coming this weekend. My question is when does everyone else fertilize their existing plots? The reason I asked is because the guy down there I was talking to said that it would be better to not put it on until early may because it wouldn't do much good this spring. I have a hard time believing that. He said that the P and K take a long time to get in and start their work so by waiting until may, the fertilizer is doing it's work while it's only benefitting the clover and not the weeds. All but one of my plots are pretty pure stands so I'm not overly concerned with weeds in them, particularly with a low nitrogen fertilizer. It seems to me that I should be getting it on now, like usual, so the clover is being benefitted while it's in its initial growth. Any thoughts??
