I've been reading the posts about fertilizing peppers with epson salt and 10-10-10. I have several bags of 19-19-19. Can I substitute the 19 in place of the 10 or will it be too hot?

You'd most likely Burn everything that you use it around!

That is some HIGH Numbers for fertilizer....
Not sure what it is for but it seems a bit high for veggies and fruits!

We bought a couple hundred pounds of it last year to use around our apple trees. I have about 100lbs left. I've been using it around my cabbage without issue but wanted to check with the peppers.

I looked at some fertilizers at Home Depot,,,,

Seems what they are selling the High Numbered Fertilizers for is Grass fertilizer....


If your going to try it around your peppers, You better only use a LITTLE Bit of it!

the 19-19-19 does an incredible job with grass. The grass around the trees grows 3-4 times faster than the rest and is the greenest grass i've ever seen.
