    I've been shopping for a rhodo and azalea fertilizer and so far have found four, all with quite different formulas. The first three are water soluble. They are 17-6-6, 4-12-8, 6-12-12, and 10-8-6.

    Are there thoughts on which formula would be best suited for a West Coast conifer forest situation? I'm leaning toward the 10-8-6 simply because it is dry as we are likely a month or more before the spring rains end.

    Thanks for any views.
