Amy Stewart started an interesting thread on her Dirt blog about Scotts Miracle-Gro’s aquisition of Whitney Farms. .. which got me thinking… which got her thinking… anyway, just jump in wherever you want.
What does all this mean for organic gardeners?
Thickening the plot, Miracle-Gro now has a line of organic fertilizers and soil amendments called Organic Choice. I’d love to hear what gardeners think about all this. Have you seen Miracle-Gro’s organic products at local independent nurseries? Box stores? So far, I’ve only spotted 1 cu. ft. bags of Miracle-Gro organic soil conditioner at Target. If you spy Miracle-Gro’s Organic Choice products anywhere, let us know! At the same time, where are you seeing Whitney Farms products and other “smaller” organic brands?
