Where to locate this fertilizer?

I'm looking for a 20-20-20 or 18-24-12 Fertilizer for a new Zoysia lawn. I've checked online at Blue and Orange both and can't seem to locate one of these formulas anywhere.

Would any of you Fertilizer guys have a quick answer to what other stores that might carry either of these?

20-20-20 is a solution grade fertilizer used by golf courses and nurseries. Peters is one well known brand. Try vendors that serve those markets.

Hey, one more quick question. I was trying to locate the Peters fertilizer. And I suppose their going under the name J.R. Peterson, is that correct or a totally different company? Thanks again!

Ooops. Not JR Peterson. This is an Everis-Scotts product. The way you apply it is as a spray. 1 lb per 1000 sq ft in at least 5 gallons of water.

Sorry about that, definitely the wrong company. I guess I should have mentioned I'm looking for a granular product. Are all 20-20-20's spray or would you happen to know of any products that are granular? It doesn't have to be exactly 20-20-20, but something very similar would be extremely helpful!

Closest thing I can think of is AG 10-10-10 or 16-15-15. But that is not something I would use on fine turf. Too much chlorides. All 20-20-20 is spray and chloride free.

You don't have to have triple 20 or 18-24-12, i was just trying to make it easier on you. Remember, those number's are just percentage's, it really doesn't matter how you get your pound of nitrogen (the first number on the bag) as long as you get it.

Let greendoctor guide you, he know's what he's talking about.

JDL/LESCO has the soluble 20-20-20 in pails approximately 3 gal size though it is sold as dry weight. I can't imagine using it to bring in a new lawn though. 18-24-12 should not be hard to find if you don't limit yourself to big box stores. Farm & Fleet, TSC, JDL, or a farm supply type place. Often it is available at the same place that sells seed. I agree with agrostis that the analysis does not matter a great deal (and that gives great advice).
