    One of their reps used to post on this forum. He was pretty set it was the silver bullet. I think it is rather expensive?

    yes it costs so much and for what, compost?? yes its special compost that has been blessed and has dragon feathers or some such thing.JK

    most of the raw materials and organisms are readily available local and very cheap......the investment on your part is the reading....... sorry but that's my .02

    Ya, honestly, Im just looking for some facts.
    I have used the product, Worked amazing, The price was a bit higher then the other options i looked at.
    However, i know how well the product worked.

    I dont know a thing about teas, and i also dont have time to make my own, so im looking for my best options.

    Here is a little test I did using Soil Secrets. I had about a coffee can of protien crumbles and the compost, I forget the name they call it. I just sort of spread it around on a corner of our front yard at the office. You could not see a lot of difference except when it was ready to be mowed. You can see the difference in growth in the far part of the photo. I did not spread it very evenly which is why the irregular growth.
