Hi all, so 2 things.

I have a container green house growing veggies in Colorado (lettuce, Basil, Radish, Onion, Spinach for now)

and my front rose/shrub and native colorado plants. Few of my plants dont bloom for long and the flowers end up cutting short. I am thinking of buying some kind of plant food, but so many to choose from!!

I was told liquid Kelp was good, but not sure if i can mix them, only use one? etc these are what I am considering to buy

so many to chose from not sure what to use. Is there a generic one where I just cant go wrong for both my garden, and decorative plants in the front? or perhaps you guys recommend for an all around type garden/veggie/and decorative shrubs and plants?

For general purpose fertilizer I buy MiracleGro in the big container at Costco, and it lasts all year for the entire garden outside and the greenhouse window and other houseplants. It’s a granulated that you mix with water. For the vegetables I get amazing results using a product from a local company but it’s used at planting time.

I have good luck with aged manure rather than fertilizer.
