I stopped by HD. They had milorganite. I picked up enough to carry me to mid summer.

Tried the Purely Organic yesterday and must say I am not impressed with the consistency...more of a clumpy powdery and found it challenging to spread evenly.

No. I'm purely Milorganite or nothing at this point.

I tried a different organic end of year last year (forget the name but it's in one of my previous posts) and I wasn't impressed with the results.


Milorganite has consistently given my the greenest lawn in the neighborhood.

Definitely crossed off Purely Organic.

I looked at previous posts, but couldn’t find it do you recall the name of the product you’re referring to?

Mixed feelings on Purely Organic.

Don’t care much for the form, but did give the lawn a nice green up.

It does not matter what you use. It only matters what the chemistry is. Your plants do not care where the **** comes from, whatsoever. Most “natural” fertilizer is less effective that those made in a lab. Knock yourself out, or do what makes you feel better, but your plants don’t care.

Milorganite is heavy nitrogen. Medium phosphorus and no potash. A balanced fertilizer is up, down, and all around. Sure it will green up stuff, but it won’t support the root system as well as other things.

Post #255.

It was Purely Organic.

Wasn't a fan.



My lawn has been consistently green and lush year after year using primarily Milorganite. I do not irrigate. Grass is only watered by the rain

Yes I would say Purely Organic is not at the top of my list again it wasn't bad but it wasn't great.
If the consistency was slightly different I might be more interested in it as it definitely did provide a nice green up.

I will say using Milorganite most of last year I was impressed. I have already picked up a number of bags of it for the season as well as several bags of ProCare from Lowe's.

Also love using the Milorganite on my perennials.
