fertilizers
« on: July 06, 2018, 10:09:30 AM »
whats everyone use for fertilizing your garden and or lawn?????? in a conversation elsewhere this Milorganite was brought up. i bought a bag once and not sure what to think. a few swear by it and its cheaper then 10-10-10. after researching it more indepth, it has a good nitrogen base, but man the way my garden looks this year i dont need it. there are other nutrients in it but just looking for opinions!!!!!!

Cant help with grass,Buy a cheap soil tester it will show PH and nutrient content. Its not specific but helps.I just dosed the Asparagus with high nitrogen for next years sprouts,Maters just got the epsom salts and a high phosphorus for blooming same wit peppers, maters today get the grass clipping mulch. I wouldnt worry about any brand name being better than another for a garden all ya need is the 3 basic nutrients in standard fertilizer and then minerals.This is my last adding anything to the garden this year beyond July it dont do much before freeze

Since most of the gardens we have are raised, I use this...

I bought some other cheap stuff to put on the asparagus that dew recommended.

The lawn and flowers seem to be liking last weeks shot of fertilizer that was put down, in addition to the cool wedder! Grass is really thick, and the sedum's are going bonkers!  They're just loaded with bumbles, which is good...we need more bees.  :smiley:
