I have some 1 year old, some 2 -3 year old and some newly planted fruit trees and bushes. What is the best feed to give them now ?- I have seen blood, fish and bone mentioned and sulphate of potash. which is best or is it different for tres and bushes?

The cordon trees are apple, pear, and there is a plum (oldest fruit in garden)         Then I have redcurrants and blackcurrants planted last year,                                 Now I am planting rhubarb, and gooseberry and last autumn I planted a cherry

thanks
