Does bloom food create a soil imbalance?
I am using less chemical type fertilizers now because I sometimes see weird growth from them. My question is about bloom food. If the plant is in bloom cycle and you want to feed it, if you feed high nitrogen it will stop blooming, so you should feed bloom food. But, let us start with the assumption my soil is in balance. If I want my soil to stay balanced, I should use 10 10 10. If I use bloom food won't the balance be upset? I am thinking more about the soil then the plants. Bone meal caused a lot of leaf burn on my Asian magnolia one year, so I don't apply bone meal to plants anymore. I only compost bone meal. I did use a bloom food on the bulbs once this spring.
