Mixing up the feed

I have FBB and bonemeal mixed in one tub. Is this ok? The paper boxes became fragile when damp and I didn’t want to have lots of different containers. If I could find chicken pellets I’d add it to this feeding mix I was thinking. Good idea?
At least you'll get good root growth

There's a definite case here for opportunist salvage. If you wait for a need to present itself, the required item can never be found, which is why my shed's full of things that 'could come in useful one day', including containers of many types. However, with nutrient I'm always confused so, using the perfection of nature, if an animal relieves itself in a particular spot, then the wind blows a load of leaves off a nearby tree, and an unfortunate bird's carcass decomposes too, I've always assumed the next seed that germinates there will feed on the elements of nutrition it needs from the available selection. So, to pick up on George's post, he's obviously right in saying an unbalanced feed can be created by mixing but is that a problem to be avoided?
Even mixed imbalanced feeding might be better than none, which is what I’ve been guilty of before so everything has to just take its chances here. It’s so or die. Everything is going to get a month feed from now until the feed finishes.
