Well said MDW84, I think there is far too much feed stuffs going around these days. Far better to start a compost heap, add some farmyard manure, you can buy this at a garden centre if you are not near a farm, put this on nice and thick in the late Autumn, or early Spring, thats all you need.
Having said that, if you have acid soil, as I have, you will need to add lime if you want to grow cabbages, or any brassica.
Get some high potash plant food for tomatoes, tubs and baskets, but not too early, make your plants work before you make them too cosy.
We have some fantastic gardens down here in Cornwall, they dont douse the ground with FBB through the year, also the heathers on the Moors here are fantastic, no one goes up there feeding them.
