I am interested in attempting to go organic with my lawn care program. Instead of using sythetic fertilizers like Scott's products, I would like to use things like Alfalfa pellets that not only add nitrogen but organic matter to my clay soil as well.

So where can I purchase organic fertilizers like Afalfa pellets?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Default Buy Milorganite

Milorganite is dried and packaged sewage sludge from the Milwaukee Sewage Treatment Plant. Very common in the "Rust Belt", but I don't remember seeing it in NC.

Can't get any more "organic" than that. But DO NOT use it in a garden to fertilize food crops.

If you're up for a trip to Carrboro, 5th Season Gardening has it. It's across from Open Eye Cafe on Greensboro.

My neighbor uses only organic, and has a beautiful lawn, for sure. He did tell me it costs a lot more. I think it's this product but not 100 percent positive.

Vermicycle Organics Corporation and Bioremediation (http://www.vermicycleorganics.com/htmls/about.html - broken link)

Friend to the Environment and the Farmer

With Operations based in Wilson, North Carolina, Vermicycle Organics, Inc. formed in 1994 to provide vermiculture "Bioremediation" for solid wastes and to produce high quality fertilizer as a by product. Their goal was to find an environmentally and financially sound method of remidiating solid wastes by using earthworms, converting the wastes into a high grade organic fertilizer for retail and commercial markets. This process becomes a win-win for the farmer, the environment and the consumer.

Good idea! I think I'll check it out, also.
best,
toodie

Nothing beats horse manure compost, but I just can't imagine the neighbors in North Raleigh being okay with the initial look :-)

Default Organic Fertilizers

I have organic fertilizers for sale. My products are roughly half the price for half the cost of chemical based equivalents and about a fourth the price of other organic products.

Contact me for more info.
