LEARN MORE ABOUT MILORGANITE
WHAT IS IT EXACTLY?
An all-purpose organic nitrogen fertilizer composed of heat dried microbes that have digested organic matter in wastewater.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes! For both people and pets. It meets the most stringent criteria imposed on fertilizer products for health, safety, and environmental concerns.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM SYNTHETIC FERTILIZERS?
Milorganite is “slow food” made from natural, organic matter which feeds plants evenly and gradually. This nurtures the roots of plants which develops into more robust yields (if applicable). Synthetic fertilizers are “fast food” and often force unneccessary top growth making for skinnier plants. They are also manufactured chemically with high burn and leaching potential.
MILORGANITE HAS PHOSPHORUS IN IT. ISN’T THAT BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
Phosphorus is a necessary part of the fertility program. University studies show that the phosphorus in Milorganite stays in the soil for plants to use, and doesn’t leach into local water sources.
WHAT CAN IT BE USED FOR?
Everything! Lawns, shrubs, trees, flowers, and vegetables (it’s organic!). Also great for new lawns. Nitgrogen feeds the seedlings as needed for quick growth.
CAN IT BE USED WITH OTHER FERTILIZERS OR PESTICIDES?
Yes! Just be sure to read labels to avoid over fertilization.
DOES IT KILL WEEDS?
No. Milorganite feeds plants, it doesn’t prevent or kill them.
DOES IT HAVE TO BE WATERED IN?
No. It’s saft free so it won’t burn plants or lawns, even in the hottest of temperatures and driest conditions.
