Scott's Fertilizer.

I have seen Scott's vehicles in the Cincinnati area appling a different type of grainual than what is sold in stores. It looks more forgiving for accidental burn strip in the yard. Does anyone know where to find it. Thanks

Promo,

LESCO owns & operates the largest PolySCU fertilizer plant in the world. It has, from time to time, made fertilizer for many other companies. There was a time when Scott's & Lesco partnered up to balance our individual use needs. But it was the other way around. We had larger manufacturing capacity than we had sales for. So we sold off the balance. Sometimes direct. Sometimes through brokers.

As far as I know, at this time we don't make any Scotts fertilizers. Nor does Scott's make anything for us. Scott's Pro Line is currently owned & manufactured by The Anderson's.

I know one Scott's Lawn Care franchise owner. The last time we discussed this matter, he indicated to me that a percentage of his purchases (I have no idea what %) must be with Scotts. But Scotts only manufactures the Consumer Line. The Anderson's owns the current Scott's Pro Line label book. So my buddy is actually using The Anderson's product (in a Scott's bag) for something like 2 or 3 rounds.

He does buy the rest from us once the commitment is met.

Hope this helps

Steve
