You’ve probably seen this at every big box store in the country. For someone just getting into fertilizer who wants a tried and true option this will work well and has settings right on the bag for Scotts spreaders.
Category: Granular Fertilizer
For years Milorganite was part of my lawn program and is also a perfect fertilizer for beginners who want to start using granular but need practice with using a spreader without fear of damaging the lawn. My soil tests have since told me that I need other products instead of milorganite (it is high in phosphorus) but using this a few times a year and mixing in a product with potassium for the rest of your apps would be a good plan. p.s. look for this locally or for "clones" of similar products that will usually be called some sort of "organic lawn food" where you'll get a cheaper price than buying online
This is a no phosphorus organic lawn food that is a good alternative to Milorganite. Milorganite does not contain potassium and it's an important macronutrient to apply so I would rotate in a product like this in your program if you want to stay organic based.
