Eastern Expert - Paul Parent
"I have been using Milorganite for over 40 years now when planting new shrubs and trees to insure proper root development. It provides a constant feed to the development root system, it will not burn the roots and it will last well into the first season of growth. Milorganite is also wonderful when planting Fall bulbs as it will not encourage animals to dig them up like Bone Meal products and also a great fertilizer to wake up your perennial garden when used in the early spring. Organic, slow release and I have found that when used around young plants it will keep animals from feeding on them, a good animal repellent."
