I would say you hit it with too much fertiliser especially Nitrogen. They recommend 40 ml to 10 L of water - I would think that is for well established plants - cut it back to 10 ml or 20 ml for small plants. If you start will good fertile soil to start with then you don't need to fertilise again until they are well established - if at all.
