    Default Top Dressing

    When top dressing my over wintered vegetables with a granular fertiliser should I fork or hoe the fertiliser into the top soil or can I leave it on the soil surface to be washed in by the next lot of rain?

    Best regards,
    Greg

    I'd just sprinkle it on then lightly fork it over.

    I just sprinkle it onto damp ground and leave it, to be honest.

    It can only go one way, so I usually let it do its own stuff!
