What Liquid Fertilizer?

Hi, i know many people mix their own fertilizer, but can anyone give me some advice about the best ready to use shop bought fertilizer. Please be aware that i am from the UK, so some of the products you use on your side of the pond may not be available to me unfortunately.

Tropica MasterGrow (They changed the name to Tropica Plant Nutrition) is very good. Tropica is a Denmark-based company and their website is www.tropica.com. You can do a dealer locate in the UK.

It will provide your trace/micro nutrients but not your macro nutrients.

Yes I've used Tropica for a few years. You can also look at similar products like Seachem Flourish and Plantex CSM as well, but I don't know if they are sold where you are. I've never heard of Aquatic Plantation here but it looks like it will give you both macro & micro nutrients.

Maybe others more knowledgeable on the forum would know?

not sure if you have Seachem in the UK but their website www.seachem.com has 5 languages listed so I'm guessing someone in Europe carries it. (I can't get into their site at the moment, buggy internet) Anyway, I highly recommend their products. I've not come across any that I haven't been satisfied with.
