Ideal for use with grass, but can also be used on vegetables/herbs

I had good results using this fertilizer for my herb and vegetable garden. While I think it's formulated more specifically for grass lawns, it can be useful in other applications as well. Definitely worth a try in your garden at the price.

Good product

Received this fertilizer in the early fall and used it on my lawn for fall seeding and it has worked nicely. It was super easy to lay down and feed my lawn.

Helped a patch of my lawn finally grow some grass

Theres been a patch in my lawn thats been either nothing but dirt on some months and other months is little bits of grass struggling to grow, been throwing some of this stuff on it to try and help promote the grass health a bit and so far it seems to be working as the patch is now nothing but grasswill probably be using this for my planned vegetable patch in the future!
