Hi Max, i use FBB in April and nettle tea for getting the plants started then comfry tea after, (added potash for fruit trees ) also any sea weed that i can blend , indoors i use miracle grow because my partner bought me some ,i think indoor food is pretty much a muchness, But i only use a third to half the recommended dosage of any of them.

Good luck.
