And in the end...a happy beginning!
Kathy, Al just posted the tip of the iceberg above. He's got LOADS more info you love.

I hear ya, Al...easiest to just go buy some new stuff with the proper ratio, eh? I'm sure I'll do that. (Will look for bulk bags somewhere as I really need quite a bit.)

I wonder if I could use the 20-20-20 in some way to use it up. (I bet I have five or ten pounds of it left.) Are you hinting I could increase the N and K with something else to get the 3:1:2 ratio? That would let me use the 20/phosphorus as the base point to work from, right?

Thanks again!
Shoe (who also wonders about just going ahead and using the 20-20-20- on the yard shrubs in an effort to not waste it and relieve the guilt from having to buy the new stuff! )

A good place to explore, if you're looking for answers to questions about soils, fertilizers, or container culture that require slightly more technical answers.
