days of rain, fertilize again?

Hi, we have been swamped so to speak. Should I fertilize again as it has probably leached out. If I do, what should the numbers be? Thanks

We have had a fair bit of rain here too. Yesterday was a decent day so I fertilized again. I try to fertilize my brugmansias every week with a higher middle number fertilizer, and yesterday the dahlias got it too. I stop fertilizing by the middle of August, as I do not want to encourage growth, but rather let them settle down and clear out their system from the "performance enhancers".
