Dear All,

A number of years ago Diana Chapman recommended tomato fertilizer as an 
excellent source of fertilizer for bulbs. I believe she mentioned a ratio 
of 5-10-10. Others have continued to repeat this advice. I began to look 
for tomato fertilizer and never found any in the ratio she recommended. I 
found huge variations in the ingredients of what was referred to as tomato 
fertilizer. They were not all low in nitrogen. If Diana and I both live in 
California and there is this huge difference just in our state, think how 
that could be magnified around the world.  I'm not sure what would be the 
best common denominator when explaining what to look for. Is the ratio of 
Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium everywhere?
