A good gauge of the right amount will be around 5% of the soil surface area. Eg: 1/3 Tablespoon for a pot of 14cm diameter.
It's a pleasure to eat what we grow. But want to be sure what goes onto your plate is organic? For edibles, you can use our Organic Fertilizer. A balanced amount of nutrients that is sufficient for promoting leafing, flowering, & fruiting!

Too much and you're playing with fire. Never over-fertilize, or you will burn and kill your plant :(
