I use synthetic in the fall and Milorganite in the late spring.

Menards sells their own brand of milorganite now.

No need to if you fertilize properly and well in the fall.

Let the initial spring growth occur and then when things slow down a bit apply your Milorganite.

Milorganite tends to be my go-to as scheduling my spreading of synthetic tends to be difficult with kids who always want to play in the yard.

It still works fine for me. Grass is a nice dark green right now, and the seed I threw down 2.5 weeks ago is now mostly 2-3" tall by now.

How much for the synthetic row especially when over seeding and in the fall when I preferred to apply the majority of nitrogen compared to any other time of the year.

Also my final fertilizer application tends to be in late October/early November when temps are starting to cool and synthetic again works better while organic fertilizers are better for warmer temperatures.

I missed my Labor Day application for the first time ever. Very busy. Anyway, I applied it today. Should I still apply the November application or will this application hold me over into spring? I'm in Michigan.

You can apply Milorganite in November, but might be a little late in Michigan. Organic fertilizer is ineffective in cooler temps. 40s/30s are the average for your area in November. I would save it for spring.

Perfect weather in the mid Atlantic for an application of Milorganite this week.

I started looking for Milogranite 2 weeks ago. I want to stock up before the spring rush. None at the stores for 2 weeks. I never ran into it out of stock often until this year.
