    We just endured our first significant snowfall of the year. It was sixty degrees one day and the next day it snow several inches! Anyway, a company that mainly fertilizes had already applied their first round of fertilizer before the snow. In my amateur opinion, this application's function has been lost and the customers are mad. Here is a good example of jumping the gun...any thoughts/remarks?:rolleyes:

    Jumping the gun? Probably. Waste an application? Not really. The material is still there. Will it be as effective as material I put on at the proper time? No. But the answer to that question would have been No even before it snowed. From Springfield HUh. I'm from Auburn..

    Just like rain and maybe better. No waste at all.
  4. So it's going to get watered in just like spring rain.

    Not a waste at all, it snowed here in STL same day as you and I started apps last week.

  6. NICE!!! Make that "TG-LGF" LMAO

    Their marketing, sales and all, are one of the best.

    Their service is what sucks.

    If I was the size of them, I would not let the crap go on for as long as they have.

    I read an artical about them, they want to try and bring up that customer retension percentage, because it's starting to give them a bad name, and it is costing them too much for new customers.


    You would think they would have thought that 10 years ago easy.
