Fertilizer Similar To Milorganite?

Q: It looks like there’s a shortage of Milorganite. I use it almost exclusively in my landscape. Is there any other all-in-one fertilizer that comes close to it? 

A: Milorganite fertilizer is made from composted sewage sludge in Milwaukee. In the short term, you’ll just have to call local nurseries to check shipments. In the long term, if you have friends up there, remind them to eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Until supply equals demand you could substitute Espoma Holly-tone or Dr. Earth All Purpose Fertilizer for Milorganite on all your landscape plants.
