I have to readjust my applications once I move. My lawn has greened up nicely even though the lows are in the 20's and highs in the 40s-50s. I'm going to throw some Milo down at the end of April or May so it will green up for the new owners. Once I get to my new place in August. I'm going to start with the fall application and plant some roses and flowers in fall. I've had great success throwing Milo in the planting holes in fall.

How very considerate of you to leave you new owners with a green and fertilized lawn!

Everyone should be as good as you.

I only need 4 bags per application. So one spring, one summer and one fall. Sometimes I do a bonus.

I just did my first application. A little early for the area, but I have some good rain in the forecast so wanted to get it down before then.

Nothing wrong with that since itís organic.

Looking to use it this year on my Perennials as well.

Hollytone and Milorganite make for a good combination to cover your acid loving shrubs, plants, and your lawn.

I'm hoping the Southeast area doesn't have the same issues with the Milo shortage that the Midwest experienced last year. I've grown accustomed to using 1 bag at a time. I'll probably need 3-4 bags every application in the new location.

It seems like the big box stores are always out of it by mid summer. Either intentionally on their behalf or the material experiences shortages after the peak demand in spring.

When it available, I buy enough to last the year since it doesnít go bad!

Just picked up 8 bags at my local Walmart for $11/bag. Tempted to get more for mid-summer. They had an entire pallet full when I was there this morning..

It's $14.98 per bag locally to me.

I went over to the dark side. I hired a lawn care company to provide fertilizer, pre-emergent, grub control, etc. $99.00 per application (1/2 acre lot, 20,000~ sq ft), 6 times total during the season.

That's cheaper than I can buy the stuff and do it all myself, so except for mowing, I'm done with doing all the rest myself.

Walmart definitely has it for the best price and when I see it there, I get enough for the entire year since it becomes scarce in early summer.
