I hate to say this, but it depends on the plants.

Yes, my full service accounts get fertilizer to plants. Soils and micro climates are considered first. I soil test every contracted maintenance account, and high service weed control/fertilization accounts. Different plants require different care, and you hopefully know what the plants require before applying anything to them.

This is beyond subjective. It will vary depending on plants, soil type, location, etc. Im not going to tell you what I use to fertilize palms and tropical plants in florida bc that doesn't help you at all. Don't mean to sound like a jerk, but you prob want to contact your local extension or hort dept....
