Using Milorganite in Gardens
With Milorganite, who needs a green thumb? Trusted by rose groups, daylily societies and tomato growers for over 85 years, Milorganite provides the nourishment every garden needs to grow the biggest and best flowers, fruits and vegetables.
Milorganite works so well because of its slow-release organic nitrogen. One application feeds plants a steady dose of nutrition for 8-10 weeks. A slow, steady feeding enhances green, develops roots and improves soil without forcing excessive top growth.
Safety in the products used around the food we eat is a concern we all share. Milorganite does more testing than anyone else in the fertilizer industry to guarantee the product in your garden is absolutely safe. Protecting children and pets will always come first at Milorganite.
Created from natural processes, organic nitrogen fertilizers like Milorganite act differently in your garden. Consumers choose slow release fertilizers because they feed longer and do not burn tender plants.
In addition to being an excellent source of organic nutrients, research suggests that Milorganite also works as a deer deterrent. It is, however, an off-label use and we do not register the product as a deterrent.
