A Top-Notch Organic Fertilizer: Milorganite

Looking for a truly all-purpose organic fertilizer to improve your soil? Look no further than Milorganite! This organic-nitrogen fertilizer can be used safely on lawns, flowers, vegetables, shrubs, trees and as a carrier when spreading grass seed. Another benefit is that it doesn’t burn the plants in your landscape so you don’t have to worry about also accidentally burning your lawn. You also don’t need to water it in: it will stay in the soil ready to work whenever moisture is available. Here are some other benefits of using Milorganite:

It offers a slow-release formula. Milorganite’s formula provides nitrogen and other important nutrients for up to ten weeks after you apply it. It offers even growth and strong root development and is one of the best defenses against weeds in your lawn. Slow release is also better for the environment because plants use the nutrients at a rate that is less likely to reach groundwater. Want to offer plants and flowers even and gradual nutrition? This slow release formula is perfect for you.

Feeds your soil’s organic matter. We all know that healthy soil means you’ll also have healthier plants. Milorganite is composed of 85% organic matter, successfully nourishing the plant and feeding the soil microbes. It also doesn’t “leach”, which means the water-soluble nutrients aren’t washed away.

Environmentally friendly. This nutrient-rich byproduct is transformed into a highly effective fertilizer and it’s one of the nation’s oldest recycling programs. Also, there are no mined resources or synthetics in milorganite. Another benefit is that it meets all safety requirements, complies with all federal and local limits, making this product ideal for all of your fertilizing needs.
