Default Trimmed The Tomatoes + Fertilizer Question

Today I trimmed all my tomato plants removed any growth neat the base of the plant & removed any suckers. After that I gave every tomato & pepper plant a dose of Expert 15-30-15 water soluble fertilizer I have more than enough to last the year. I found out today that expert no longer has it available, so like I said I'm fine for this year butI'm wondering if a few here could let me know what water soluble fertilizer there using for tomatoes & peppers and the N,P.K numbers are. I was able to get the Expert at Walmart, they still carry Expert but not with the NPK I use. Let me know what works for you, I use 7 gal. grow bags for my tomatoes & peppers.

15-30-15? Wow, that's the opposite of what I like. I use something like 8-2-6.

I like the results of 8-2-6. I've also used 10-10-10 extensively, liked the results there too.

Slugworth I went to the local Menards and couldn't find it but they had Shultz tomato fertilizer 17-18-28 on sale for just over 4.00. Thanks for the advice!
