After bouncing back and forth on the issue, I have decided to forgo the synthetic winterizer, apply some Scotts Organic Choice Lawn Food that I picked up for 1/2 price (even though I have read that the micro herd isn't too active in NJ at this point in the year) and hope for the best in the spring. I know that a lot of organic guys cheat a bit for their winterizer and go synthetic or go with urea, which we could probably debate about for 20 pages in regards to whether it is organic or not, but I was just wondering what everyone here does. And for those who don't bend and stick with organics, how has your lawn done in the spring (early green up? late green up?)? Thanks!
