Osmocote 19-5-8 Slow Release Fertilizer w/minors. Looks like pretty good stuff. My daily fertigation is a bit labor intensive during the heat of summer, in addition to all the watering by hand. There's a $10 coupon for first time buyers. The bag should last me several years, but I'll probably be tempted to use it on my in-ground plants too.

Osmocote 16-16-16 is the only fertilizer my in-ground plants get some years. Since you have enough, why not try an experiment with some of your in-grounds?

Yes please use it in ground.
Best peppers I ever had one year using it on top and garden tone mixed in the soil.

@edweather You can sign up for Pro Plus and at least twice a year AMLEO has free shipping. I use that up as much as possible but you only get free shipping on 80LBS so I make two orders and never had a problem.

Did you consider the Florikan fertilizers? I like the $20 lower price on the 18-5-12 140 month slower release fertilizer, but don't know how it compares.

The people I order my fishing stuff from I get free shipping.
I order one item and they then send me a ten percent discount coupon and I then order the rest.
I love playing the system .

Hey, thanks. AMLEO has free shipping now for orders over $100. I just found out that they are out of stock on the 19-5-8 though. Yes there are some good Florikan products, and I'm looking at those as well. Seems like a lot of good deals out there now with free shipping and $ off coupons. I liked the Osmocote because it had calcium in it. Most have magnesium, but calcium isn't that common.
