Obviously every tank is different but this will give you a rough guide

Suggestion: Use up all your florish and go with dry ferts. You will save many, many dollars and it is quite easy to mix your own stuff up. There is lots of info on using dry ferts around.

+1 to this, i started with flourish and am so glad i switched over to dry ferts. Seeing nice growth and the dosing really isnt a whole lot different, plus its going to save a lot of money.

Hit up nilocg. He has basically all you need for ferts among other things.

You can also consider a hydroponics store, if you have any that are local.

You will need at least the following:

potassium nitrate
potassium dihydrogen phosphate
Plantex CSM+B (or some other comparable trace mix)

If your water is particularly soft, you can also go with a GH booster (a mix of magnesium and calcium sulfate).

More information can be found in my guide for planted aquariums (linked in my signature)
