To get the most out of any organic fertilizer, keep in mind how plants feed and how these fertilizers act in the soil. the bulk of a plant's feeder roots -- whether it's a midget marigold or a mighty oak -- lie just beneath the surface, so generally there is no need to dig fertilizer deep into the soil. anyway, low oxygen levels there would retard microbial growth, which is necessary to unlock nutrients from most organic fertilizers.
