Fertalizing plants

I picked up some general flower/veg. fertalizer this afternoon. My question is, is it alright to just sprikle it around the base of the plant (daylilies, impatients, agapanthus, iris, roses) or do I need to mix it into the soil. I have a 3 inch layer of mulch so this would be a pain. the fert. is a time released type.

I would sprinkle it lightly around the plants, but take care not to get it in contact with the plant. Next, I would water it in. Don't over do it. Plants generally don't benefit from too much feeding. Too much fertilizer will run the earthworms off.

Hope this helps.
