What is a good water soluble fertilizer for seedlings?

Its my first time growing plants from seed... Whats the best fertiliser for young plants?

    None, as far as I know. Seed compost has very little nutrient in it because it doesn't need any for seeds to germinate.  You will then be potting on seedlings into fresh compost which will have enough nutrient to support the seedlings for a few weeks before they get potted on again or planted in soil. So no need for feed until plants are growing well in their final position.
  • Ah okay, thanks!
