"As a low maintenance eco-friendly gardener I use Milorganite for all my gardening needs. I recommend this goof-proof fertilizer to both beginning and experienced gardeners. The organic nitrogen is slow release and non-burning. Plus the phosphorous is non-leaching, staying put for grass, shrubs, and plants to use.

Research shows that as the microorganisms break down the Milorganite, they also aid in releasing naturally occurring phosphorous and potassium that is bound to the soil, making it more readily available for plant uptake."
