We don't make product or vendor recommendations. Usually only three numbers (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) are listed. I wonder if you mean 6-6-6 or 6-6-2? When all the numbers are the same it is considered a "balanced" fertilizer and you can go with something close if you can't find the sixes, such as 5-5-5 or 10-10-10. If the 2 represents potassium, you need a fertilizer higher in nitrogen and phosphorus and lower in potassium. Again the numbers can vary a little as long as the ratio is the same.

Your local cooperative extension group may recommend fertilizers for you. Here is how to find them:
