Can I use Espoma 'Epsom Plus' 0-0-22 on my lawn?

love_the_yard(z9A Jax FL)March 21, 2012

A couple years ago, I bought a bunch of bags of Espoma "Epsom Plus" 0-0-22 on clearance. They have been sitting in my garage ever since. The product is all organic. I live in Jacksonville, Florida and my lawn is St. Augustinegrass. I am wondering if I can use this on my lawn? Can I put it in my broadcast spreader and apply it? Will it do anything good for my lawn? Will it do anything bad to my lawn? I know that most lawn fertilizers are high in nitrogen, which this product has none. So would it be a complete waste to put it on my grass?

Thank you so much for the help!

If you had a soil test that showed you needed extra K, then yes, use it any time. If not, then you would be wasting it.

I don't have a soil test. Are there soil tests that show that Nitrogen or Potash are needed?

Soil test info here.
You could use it as a suppliment for palm trees if you have any, otherwise I'd blend it with a high nitrogen fertilizer and broadcast it on the lawn. Won't hurt anything.
