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.
That's a very valid point. I found myself this year telling my clients, "okay...you won't see a green up for 10+ days". The other problem with slow release is if the client bags clippings and some of the fert is pulled up in the catcher then it's wasted vs a product that dissolves quickly.
