    Does anyone here use humic acid as soil amendment, and has it made a noticeable difference?---Todd

    Hi Todd, yea we use it on sandy soils mostly [ for lawns] and in landscaped beds with broadleafed evergreens and hydranga....Noticeable differance, well not in the terms of useing a chelated iron for clorosis. Over all it seems to be a readily avalible neutrient supplement [ like seaweed], long term areas we use it appear to be better [ after 3-6 months]....hope this is helpful, regards :)

    Hi Todd there are 2 ways to go about this, I get a liqued from a local "Arborist Supply", PTS,[ Professional Tree Surgeons] in Lindenhurst, NY....Sorry I dont have there # off hand....The 2nd option is to make it outa a compost pile of leaf mold with out any grass clippings...I'll look up that #, regards Saxon

    Nocutting - we buy the SP-85 (granular) and then mix it ourself. The shipping is way cheaper, but you have to mix it and then let it sit for a day to let the solids settle out.
