For veggies, Johnson's go-to fertilizer is ferti-lome Gardener's Special Plant Food. We've sold this all-purpose fertilizer for decades, and there's a reason why. Gardener's Special contains both fast and slow release nitrogen, plus necessary trace elements to help increase plant development and crop yield. These elements are especially important, because they're depleted quickly from the soil by high demand vegetable plants. Gardener's Choice can also be used on bedding plants, flowers, bulbs, roses, evergreens, ornamental plants, and shrubs. 4 pound bag.
