    Nitrogen in fertilizer is toxic to plants if given too much. especially broad leaf plants. Clover is very sensitive to nitrogen, where as some other plants thrive on it most broad leaf weeds will die out from it. Read the label.

    It is poisonous to plants, as salty plants can't absorb water adequately. ... In addition, plants with excessive new foliage (caused by too much fertilizer) tend to attract pests like aphids, who love tender leaves. These pests can literally suck the life out of plants.

    yes, it burns the plants dead. so water it down a lot and water thoroughly often. Maybe once MG and 10 times straight water.

    Yes it can. There is suck a thing as over-fertilizing. 

    It's called Nitrogen Burn and it can kill off plants. Only use what they suggest on the packaging. 

    Frankly...my best success rate is diluting it to the "Every Day Watering" levels and watering ever time the soil dries out.
