I’ve just started using Bio-Gold fertilizer pellets (as well as Dr. Earth fertilizer) after hearing what Ryan suggests. I’ve been using Osmocote and Miracle Gro. Am I correct in thinking that the Bio-Gold will REPLACE the Osmocote as opposed to SUPPLEMENTING it? My assumptions aren’t always correct!
Both products have their pluses and minuses for me:
+ Osmocote needs to be applied less frequently.
+ Osmocote is far less expensive.
- Osmocote leaves insoluble, unsightly shells that should be removed from the soil. (How many people do this?)
+ Bio-Gold is a more complete formula.
+ Bio-Gold leaves no residue.
- Bio-Gold must be applied three times as often.
- Bio-Gold costs far more.
I’m a believer in using the best products and tools one can afford since the working experience and results are worth the price.
It will be interesting to see the results.
Thanks for your input.
