Is this a general fertilizer and should it be added to the soil each time a new planting is made?

Ironite can be added as directed on the label if the plants do not seem a healthy green. You may not need to add this if your plants are green and healthy looking.
Osmocote is a long-feeding, slow release chemical fertilizer that can be applied (if desired) according to the label directions. This is not really necessary if you are feeding with Plant-tone or Holly-tone. However, it will provide nutrients to the plants a bit quicker than an organic fertilizer because it doesn't need to be broken down first by soil organisms. Use it according to the label directions for a quick but long lasting boost to your plantings.
