Fertilizer recommendation.

Asked May 30, 2017, 3:18 PM EDT

I had a soil test completed on my garden soil and the report stated that the desired fertilizer ratio should be 6:1:6. I can not find that ratio and would it be ok to use 12:12:12 for my fertilizer. My soil test #728A63. Thank You John Dedoes

Seeing as you do not need any phosphorous for your garden you can go the lawn section of your local nursery or big box store and look at those fertilizers. What you will find is the middle number is 0. You may use that fertilizer safely on your garden since you do not need to add the phosphorous.
