Q.What Is The Best Container Gardening Book For SoCal?
I recently redid my south facing, 2nd story deck with individual containers. I am going crazy trying to get the info for the various plants (water/fertiliser etc) So many opinions and conflicting advice! Example: good all purpose (or 2 or 3) fertiliser. I would really appreciate some advice.

That is something that you will run into, quite often! The care and proper plant food will be determined by many factors. The most important one will be the exact species of plant. Each plant will have a different set of requirements, though many will have enough similarities to treat the same.
The best place to start will be with each plant that you intend to grow. It will be necessary to search requirements of each individual plant and then compare their care. Once you are comfortable with your plant selection, then you can employ what you have learned.
