I think the best approach is to select the fertilizer analysis according to the type of vegetables you are growing. For leafy vegetables, high nitrogen fertilizers such as 12-12-12 or 15-15-15 analyses are appropriate. For vegetables grown for their fruits, seeds, roots or bulbs, fertilizers such as 6-24-24, 6-12-18 and 8-16-16 or equivalent are satisfactory. Hope this information provides some guidance! Best wishes with your garden.
