When you say seedlings how far along are they?

well they are stocks and asters nearly ready to go into pots with a good few leaves on some.

I wouldn't use any extra fertilizer on any seedlings - there will be quite enough in the compost. It's like trying to feed a baby steak and chips! :-)

Once the plants have grown several pairs of leaves and have a good root system you'll be potting them on or up into larger pots, so you'll be adding fresh compost and so they won't need any extra for a while.
You could start using a soluble feed when they've been in the pots for about a month, or mix some slow release granules into the compost when putting them into their final containers.
