    Question Which is the "best" fertilizer ?

    Have used five different brands on the lawn. A gardener said that the ONLY good way is to use 15-15-15 every three months and to not use Iron such as Ironite. Which fertilizer and schedule is the best for California ?

    Get your soil tested. That's the best way. It's not expensive, and you can apply what is actually required/needed. pH is important as well. It doesn't matter what you put down, if the soil pH is wrong the nutrients will be unavailable to the plant.

    Like a fins single malt, well aged port or just plain old beer.
    There is not such things as best for everyone everywhere.
    There is the right one, for the right plants , growing in the right soils at the right times.
    What you use in spring & summer will be different to what get used in winter & autum .

    Then there is the soil type & soil moisture and you can have dozens of them in a single yard.
