    I can get Sustane 5-2-4+fe for $23.00 or RInger Lawn Restore for $17. Which is the better of the two?
    Thanks,

  2. So what is the anylsis of ringer restore, and what are all the ingredients for both?

    Sustane 5-2-4 is an excellent product!

    A few notes that come to my mind.

    Ringer is usally sold in 40# bags -- is tht price for 40#'s? But.. The price I usually see is about 20.00 per 40# bg and thats only buying it by the pallet. I sawit home depot for 27.95 for 40#'s

    You can get Sustane 5-2-4 cheaper. I can get it at Leso for about 16.50

    Ringer is a 10-2-6 product. Less product needs to be applied then the sustane

    RInger is not derived from manure -- rather it is derived from meal products.

    The product I m using is simialar to all of these and made by nature safe. It is a 10-2-8 product100% organic. It is cheaper than all of the products you listed.

    I have a Naturesafe distributor in my town. Should I look into that option as well? Is it a better value/better product?
    Thanks,

    Nature safe is usually only sold comercially in multiple ton orders -- so I don't don't know if they would sell to a homeowner. But -- yes -- I think they are a superior product to both of the one mentioned.
