Works well
1st year garden in poor clay soil. This was the only thing that was going to make the garden grow. Had good yield of tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, basil, and a watermelon of 47.8 lbs. As someone else said before, a little smelly, but can deal with it.

First used this product last year and I had the best garden I had had in a number of years. I had a bumper crop of bell peppers and tomatoes. I have used this product this year and my peppers are doing great along with my cucumbers which I had not grown in years because they never turned out. Would recommend this product to help your garden grow.

Good all natural fertilizer that is showing good results.
This is a good, balanced natural fertilizer. I use it for container gardening. Attached is a picture of two 'City Picker' container gardens. (Also purchased at Home Depot) They contain a variety of vegetables I planted using this fertilizer. The planter on the left was planted about two months before the picture was taken. The planter on the right was planted about 3 weeks before this picture was taken. You can see very strong growth and we're getting great yields.

Espoma is the bomb. Every tone I have ever tried works better than anything else, other than my homegrown compost and worm castings. I really wish my local home depot would carry Espoma Bio Tone Starter Fertilizer in the big bags like this one. Would make my life easier!
