When you can't find the exact ratio of fertilizer, purchase one that is similar. For example, the one you mentioned has a higher nitrogen number, so get something similar with nitrogen as the highest number.

As far as the anti-transpirant, most experts advise against them. If applied too early, they can damage the shrubs. Plus, they are not effective for evergreens, according to the article below.
