    Ask him for the bag. I never use fertilizer on my lawn. The grass clippings work their way down to the soil and work as its own fertilizer. Good luck!

    It doesn't sound like it's organic---Blue? I'm really sorry, I would be bummed too. People don't understand the importance of organic unless they too are organic.

    Does anything graze on your lawn or are you concerned from an environmental standpoint? Does your lawn drain to a pond of other body of water? The only organic lawn care catalog I know of is Gardens Alive. You can find them online. Maybe they would be able to tell you if any organic lawn fertilizers are blue.

    My gardens and fruit trees are spread all over. I grow only using organic methods. I have gone to great lenghths and worked so hard for sooooo many years on this. There is no wy to stop what has happened. Oh I kow it is not the stuff from gardens alive used the many times. It would have to be something sold locally. I cant believe this is happening to me

    Oh nuts! I am SO SORRY! If it was just lawn, that would really stink. If things ate your lawn, that would really, really stink. I sell at market, too, so I can't even imagine!!

    This is going to sound crazy, but I'm not sure what else to suggest. If this is still dry, not soaked in or watered, could you vacuum the whole lawn with a shop vac? It sounds crazy, but you've got your livelihood and reputation on the line here.

    they are supposed to be coming by with the bag now. So help me if they lied to me, really I cant even think straight I am seeing RED, I am going outside to calm down and wait for them to arrive, but if anyone knows the answer to my question I would really appreciate it.

    I am hoping it is some new organic miricle grow or scotts that I have yet to have seen.
