If customers wanted slow release...they would ask for it. And not mind paying more for it at the store.
Whoops! Pardon me. "When I worked there..." I was talking about TruGreen...not Scotts.
When self-employed, it was hard to justify paying more for slow release when the customers didn't care. Sometimes they even like that big burst of dark green and rapid growth. Sigh.
