    Onions, garlic, and most other root vegetables appreciate extra nitrogen. Exceptions there would be carrots which would do better with a 1-1-1 NPK ratio. Also almost anything where the leafy greens are eaten and all the brassica family. When it comes right down to deciding which needs extra nitrogen, consider anything fruiting as not needing it. That is, tomatoes, beans, peppers, and eggplants would not benefit from extra nitrogen.
