Tomorite is often recommended because it is a high potash feed, which concentrates its efforts on promoting fruit & flower growth. It does also contain a percentage of nitrogen and phosphorus + important trace elements.
Remember all fertilizers consist of three basic elements:
N - Nitrogen = leaf growth
P - Phosphorus = root growth.
K - Potash = fruit & flower growth
A typical 'balanced' fertilizer will contain an equal measure of all three elements.......one such being *'Growmore', which has a NPK reading of 7-7-7.
*National Growmore' (as it was once called) was formulated by the government during WW2 as part of the country's 'Dig for Victory' campaign.
