Easy to use

So far it's too early to tell what effect this product will have on my veggies since I just used it the past few days (here in the north, early July would be the first side dressing of the year). As far as value is concerned, I have yet to determine if this fertilizer is cheaper to use than my home-made stuff. I doubt if it will be more effective, however, it's certainly easier to use.I always try to be as frugal as possible, so the price of $12.59 for 2.5 lbs. I consider high, especially considering I exhausted the whole bag on one fertilization of my garden, i.e., 8 - 24' rows. I used approx. 1 tsp./plant trying to follow the bag's directions, i.e., 2.5 cups/ 100 sq. ft.I don't know about other gardeners, but I always find "...covers approximately 250 sq. ft." quite unhelpful since I fertilize each plant individually and do not broadcast fertilizer as I would with, say, manure. By my calculations, it would be closer to 3/4 tsp/plant (Caveat: I am not a mathematician so my calculation might be off). Perhaps if I step back and consider that I was able to fertilize a large part of my garden - approx. 128 plants -forjust under 13 bucks, about $.10/ plant, it doesn't seem so bad.One of the things particularly attractive with this stuff is the 8% nitrogen. I've had difficulty findingorganic stuff with this level of N in our local stores.I will add to this eval. if I notice my plants doing remarkably better with this stuff.

Ok but have not used it much

Price ok but don’t know how it worksgood little


Works well. Like little pellets. Would have preferred a more granular product.

Lo recomendaría!

Se puede mezclar en el compost sin ningún problema, el grosor es decente, soluble, alimenta la planta gradualmente.

Revitalized my peppers

Easy to use. Spread it around the drip line for my pepper plants.

Good results!

It helped my flowers bloom and vegetables grow. I had been using another brand but I think not much came out while using it through the hose. This was easy to spread by hand and I saw blooms and vegetables very soon after spreading it!

Easy to use

Easy instructions/applications. Smells good enough that my cat broke into the bag.. it’s my first growing season so I don’t know how much of a difference it’s making versus not using it, but things are growing so I’ll assume it’s doing its job!


Plants love it
