Milorganite® and Flowers


Brighten your flower palette with Milorganite®, the slow-release nitrogen fertilizer that feeds floral gardens for 6-8 weeks. Choose Milorganite for fewer applications and better results. For information on properly applying Milorganite, please see our flower application rates.

Milorganite has a long tradition with rose and daylily societies around the nation, as an essential step in growing show-stopping displays.

There are many factors to consider when planting annuals or perennials. Some of the common questions to ask yourself include:

  • How much sunlight does the area receive?
  • How moist is the soil?
  • What will be the temperature of the growing environment?
  • What colors will stand out?
  • How can I highlight a perennial feature?
  • Do I want to attract butterflies or hummingbirds?
  • Is the soil sandy, loamy, or carrying extra clay?
  • Do I want flowering or non-flowering perennials?
  • How high do I want the plant to grow?
