Anyone using the Espoma products for turf or any of their other products?

I was fortunate enough last week to be given a tour of their offices and manufacturing facility and am quite impressed with their company and product claims. I have used a few of their products in the past, Holly-Tone, Flower-Tone and the planting amendment Bio-Start Plus with great success and am curious as to the success of their turf products and other opinions.

I do believe they have violated a little bit of trust with this product, It needs to have a disclaimer

In general though they have good products
