    i use about 80% organic.
    I like it alot, you dont get any fast
    rapid growth,
    It is slow at first to kick in because
    its slow release, so first app. I usually
    mix with urea to get the instant green
    until the organic kicks.
    I love it, its still a little spendy
    but the earth and soil deserve
    to get fed good & wholesome N

    Waste of money in my opinion. Usually takes twice as much as regular fert. and costs twice as much per bag. I only use it if a customer requests it . I just stick with a good slow release fertilizer and always get good results. Around here we use a fert. with a 3-1-2 or 4-1-2 ratio.:)
