    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 have used their products for years in the compost pile

    I especially like this: NOT

    Espoma Organic

    GUARANTEED ANALYSIS
    Total Nitrogen (N) ............................................................. 18.0%
    2.3% Ammoniacal Nitrogen
    4.7% Other Water Soluble Nitrogen
    11.0% Water Insoluble Nitrogen
    Available Phosphate (P2O5) ............................................. 8.0%

    <b>Ureaform, Triple Super Phosphate, and Sulfate of Potash.</b>

    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
