HA>>but very very few grapesHA>Probably needs more phosphates. Nitrates the first number in a HA>fertilizer produces lots of green. That is why lawn fertilizers have HA>a higher first number, but fruits and flowers like a higher middle HA>number which is for phosphorus. I like a high middle number like HA>tomato stakes 6-12-6 for flowering plants. I can't always get an HA>exact 1-2-1 type, but have to settle for something close depending on HA>the quantity and type I need. The third number in fertilizer is HA>potash/potassium and plants need a little of that to properly utilize HA>the other two.

Thanks Hal
