Guys, Bottom line...what IS the deal with Scotts. Where does their franchise materia come from? Is it Andersons? I need facts. I know wherever they are getting it, it is packaged for them....It may or may not be in the colorful glossy bags (I would like to know that, too) but I also know that it is not the grey homogenized material that is bought in stores. They manufacture their own fertilizers. As a matter of fact, it goes way deeper than that. They research, develop, process, and manufacture their own fertilizers...but this is not what the franchises are spreading on the lawns now. What are they using now? Not what they were using 4 years ago (Andersons, I believe), but what are they using today? I know at one point, they were even using Lesco....I don't think this is the case now, because I think their backs were put to the wall about using a Scotts "labeled" product. Can anyone who is really up on the industry news help us? I just want my facts straight. It's all part of their 20 step program. (I say that fecitiously, because that's about what it comes down to.
