Truly All Purpose
Milorganite is an all-purpose slow-release nitrogen fertilizer that can be used safely on lawns, flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees, as well as a carrier when spreading grass seed.
Doesn’t Burn Plants
You don’t have to worry about streaks, stripes or accidentally burning your lawn when you use Milorganite! It contains virtually no salts, so it won’t burn plants, even in the hottest temperatures or driest conditions. You don’t have to water it in. It’ll stay in the soil ready to work when moisture becomes available.
Iron for Greening without Staining
Grass needs iron for the long-lasting, deep, vibrant green lawn you want. Milorganite delivers organically complex iron throughout the feeding period and won’t stain concrete, unlike iron salts in some synthetic fertilizers.
Slow-Release: Steady Growth, Less Runoff, Fertilize Less Often
Milorganite’s slow-release formula provides nitrogen and other nutrients for up to 10 weeks after application. This provides even growth and better root development over a longer period of time, instead of a sudden growth spurt and excessive grass clippings. Remember: the best defense against weeds is a healthy lawn!
Slow release is also good for the environment; Milorganite’s nutrients release at a rate that plants can use making it less likely to leach into groundwater.
Slow release is good for gardens, too. The slow release nitrogen feeds plants evenly and gradually. It doesn’t interfere with flowering or fruit development. Milorganite also encourages root development, which results in abundant yields.
Adds Organic Matter to Feed the Soil
Healthy soil is the key to healthier grass and plants. Milorganite is composed of 85% organic matter, which nourishes the plant and feeds the soil microbes. This improves the soil’s ability to grow grass and other plants. Milorganite is ideal for sandy soils, because it adds organic matter and doesn’t leach, which means the water-soluble nutrients aren’t washed away.
Environmentally Friendly, Sustainable
Milorganite has been recycling since 1926, to make a nutrient-rich byproduct that is transformed into a highly effective fertilizer. There are no mined resources or synthetics in Milorganite. Production of Milorganite is guided by our dedication to be good stewards of the environment.
Safety is our number one concern. Milorganite meets stringent criteria imposed on any fertilizer product for health, safety, and environmental concerns. Milorganite complies with all federal and state regulations, which allows Milorganite to be used for all of your fertilizing needs when used as directed.
We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.
The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.
For more information on our shipping methods, browse our delivery pages in the "ABOUT" tab above.
Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.
Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
