Is Grow King Steer Manure from Lowes any good?
I have a neglected lemon tree in my back yard that had ZERO leaves on it and it looked almost dead. I have not fertilized it…EVER. My bad. Now I want to save it and make it healthy.
So I bought 2 bags of Grow King Steer Manure at Lowes. I can’t remember how much it was. This is composted steer manure.
Here’s the bag of Grow King Steer Manure. It’s a 1 cubic foot bag. Let’s see what the inside looks like.
Nothing but composted organic material along with steer manure. It looks great and actually helped revive my lemon tree. I spread both bags around the tree base and then turned the soil.
It’s been about 2 months since I put the 2 bags of steer manure around my lemon tree and have been watering it twice a week and now half the tree has deep green leaves and new branch shoots. It’s doing great now.
I recently setup a raised box garden in my back yard and was looking for compost to fill it with. So I went online to find some reviews on the products that Lowes sells. Lowes carries a lot of compost and soil from Kellogg. Is it any good?
The reviews I found online were NOT GOOD. There were lots of complaints about non-organic stuff in the Kellogg products like N’ Rich, Garden Soil and Raised Bed & Potting Mix. People said they found lots of plastic and nails and bugs in the bag. So I decided to buy a bag of each of theses products and see what I get.
The 3 cubic foot bag of Kellogg All Natural Garden Soil was about $9 and so its pretty cheap. I will show you what’s inside the bag.
Here is a closeup of the contents of the Kellogg Garden Soil bag. It’s finely mulched organic compost material…like tree trimmings and other wood. At least that what I would call it. Nothing but dark, rich, earthy compost.
I think it’s great compost for gardens or for tree soil enhancement or fertilizer. I found no non-organic stuff…no plastic no nails nor anything unacceptable for growing plants. I dumped the entire bag into my raised box garden. I have 2 strawberry pants, 1 tomato plant, 1 green pepper plant and some cucumber plants growing for about a month and they are doing great!
