Fertilizer Regulation in Florida is pure BS at present time. The State Ag inspector told me he didn't care what fertilizer I was applying, HE DIDN"T REGULATE FERTILIZER. The Fert regulations are county imposed and vary greatly from one county to the next.

Yes you can buy any reasonable standard blend of Fertilizer at any of the Big Box stores or local hardware. While I might agree residential fert is adding to Nitrates in our water etc, It is Agriculture that is the big polluter. Florida has had regular Red Tides out breaks long before commercial fertilizer was ever invented.
