[Home Depot] Scotts turf builder lawn fertilizer 5.2kg bag for $11.57

Think this is close to what Costco is offering. But you get smaller size bags and not having to deal with memberships.

I tried to see whether Lowe's would beat this price by 10%. They did not do it. It appears that Home Depot is selling last years stock (model # 0191C), and the item carried by Lowes is current years stock (Moldel # 01291). Since the model numbers are different, they would not match or beat the price.

if that is true, that is brutal. Many of those seeds will not germinate.

This is fertilizer. Not seed.

My understanding is that the middle number is important for root growth...so this is no good for new lawns?

Totally depends on what your soil had in it to being with. Usually grass needs a lot of the first number.

I have an established lot. So this is fine. But just wondering if $14.99 is a good price, or there will some more sale for cheaper price.

Is this true though? Last years seed don’t germinate one year later?

That's what I've read, seeds have a shelf life and reduced germination left in a bag for a year

How do you identify the year from the model#? Appreciate with the knowledge so we don’t get sold older products.

Reduced germination is correct for some seeds but not all the seeds. I have some oriental vegetable seeds I have been using since 2014. I use 10 or so every year and save the rest. Tomatoes and egg plant are only good for May be 2-3 years.

Costco has something similar, with their turf builder GREEN MAX at 27-0-2. This is cheaper per sq/ft,

The Costco's in BC also have 2,000 sqft coverage at 40lb bag for $59.99, but it is "weed prevent" with corn gluten meal. I don't see any NPK numbers and it says it is meant to help prevent dandelion and large crabgrass by using a weed seed germination inhibitor.

I plant 100's of tomato seeds a year. I found a pack from 2016 that I decided to use and still got 90% germination. It's mostly about how you store them.

Green Max is a different product - it has more iron and a higher percentage of slow release. It'll darken up the lawn a bit more within a couple days of application, and will feed it a bit more smoothly than the HD sale. Not a big difference, but if they're similar prices I'd get the Green Max.
