Reviews

Excellent fertilizer for the foothills

Used this to plant our fruit trees, and then used it in the garden beds too. Had a bit left over to mix in potting soil while potting up my perennials. Everything responded very well!

Convenient Solution

Instead of buying five different fertilizers to make up my soil deficiencies I can buy one. I live in the foothills and got a bag of this and have had really good results in my vegetable garden. I had beautiful, productive tomato plants using this and Blood Meal. It's great to have something formulated for acidic, clay soil like mine.
