Why shouldn't I fertilize saplings that I just planted this year?  In some cases, these are 2-year old saplings & seedlings: persimmons, paw paws, hazelnuts, plums, etc.

I'm tempted to fertilize them now that we're getting a lot of rain these days out here.  Do I really need to wait until the spring, that they will have had a full year to develop a root-system by then?
