Is that the Greentrees you are talking about??
yup, they make a veg bloom and a 555 . I like it better than dr earth it has better sourced ingredients, is a bit finer milled, and is local for me. They recommend 1 cup per ft3 but i go half that since i feed with other top dress amends teas ect and also bc im amending old soil, like you. Last couple years i got the green trees recipe and bought the ingredients in bulk myself, it was a few totes for two gardens, but it was pretty easy, they call it the 'ag pack', and greentrees is just premixed and fine milled 'agpack'

I make a tea to water in the holes/beds/pots a few days before planting as well, activate the herd a bit
