Product Description: FREEDOM It is packed with additional nutrients that can benefit the lawn and soil. And best of all, it’s great for the summer heat. DO NOT FEAR THE BURN; you’ll be all good!
We developed this formula with a 1776 theme. FREEDOM Fertilizer contains 17% nitrogen, and 25% of the nitrogen is slow release, which is perfect for summer application. It includes 7% phosphorus, encouraging rooting, which is important as we head into summer. At 7%, it’s enough to give the root system a whiff but not enough to cause your soil levels to spike. Lastly, FREEDOM also contains 6% potassium in the mix, which is excellent for aiding the lawn in stress.
There is a small amount of chelated iron and 2% magnesium. The iron helps to deepen the green color overall but won’t push it to blue. Magnesium is a micronutrient that is very important for the overall health of the grass plant and it also directly contributes to the lawn’s color.
The green shade FREEDOM brings is different from our other fertilizers. It’s not “forest green” and certainly not “lime green” - but it’s also not that “blue-green” that many of you are accustomed to. Instead, it’s a SUPER GREEN result that comes on rather slowly but builds and builds. This green will come sometime around the 12-14 day mark and keep soaring high for well over a month! It is a green that is so deep and rich that its glory flows like fireworks against a night sky on the 4th of July.
All-Natural Bio-Nite™ in Every Bag - with Red, White, and Blue FREEDOM Fertilizer is loaded with the colors red, white, and blue, as well as a little yellow (tan) to represent fireworks. The charcoal black elements in the bag are the Bio-Nite that delivers the smell of success. Bio-Nite is a bio-solid filler we add to every bag of FREEDOM Fertilizer. Bio-Nite is the same thing as Milorganite, but instead of being sourced in Milwaukee, it comes from South Florida. The good news for you is that the smell tells you that the included Bio-Nite is feeding microbes in the soil every time you apply, and they love it!
