Hi, Mags....*Growmore is a general balanced fertilizer and is intended to address all three nutriment requirements of the soil. It has a NPK rating of 7-7-7, translated means 7 equal parts of Nitrogen (leaf growth) phosphates (root growth) and potash (fruit & flowers) application is usually in soil preparation for a new planting/sowing.
*Growmore (then known as National Growmore) was introduced by the government during WW2 as part of the nation's 'Dig for Victory' campaign.
I do use it sometimes, but prefer it in the liquid form these days.
