Where do you normally find it at your local Lowes or Home Depot?

Normally both, and I have a few different locations I stop at and look. When those fail, I go to smaller scale stores next, which is what i'm doing now. Still can't find any.

HD guy said they get one pallet in every few weeks and it's gone in a couple days.

Sorry to hear.
You might want to get ahold of the manager that does inventory at one of the stores and see if they can order more or order a couple of bags in your name.

Will Milogranite help Arborvitaes (new transplants from a pot) grow in the summer/fall? We are moving to a corner lot and I want to plant a few Arborvitaes for privacy in Zone 7.

You could, but won’t get as much growth, more greening compared to something like spikes or Bayer 3-1 Feed & Protect.

Milorganite still working well on our yards into the first day of summer. I put it down in April, but we haven't had tons of heat this year, so I haven't seen the yard get as lush and green as I was hoping for. Still totally happy with the way it looks, but it was more robust last season even with the searing heat.

I plan to put down some more this weekend (cool and wet with temps in the 60s) in preparation for some nice hot weather come next week. We might get our first day of 90F for the season.

I've used all my stockpile of milorganite from last yr except one bag and can't find any locally. For those of you who can't find the milorganite, what is your second choice product?
