                <p>Upon going to Home Depot to pick up some bags for our
gardening video blog, I discovered that this store didn't carry a single
organic lawn fertilizer. Curiosity piqued, I searched online for
organic fertilizer on the Home Depot website. A couple random garden
fertilizers came up but were only two that were labeled organic. Ellen
suspects, since all the Home Depots in Ontario carry organic fertilizers,
that the fertilizer and pesticide industry might be putting pressure on
Home Depots in the US. She might be onto something because the web
results for Lowe's were surprisingly similar. Anyway if you would like
greater variety in your organic lawn care needs (or if you even wanted to
hire someone) I've compiled a list of stores and products which a wider
range of selections than the promising choice between Scott's Organics or
Converted Organics. And hey, while you're at it why not tell them that
LEAHÂ sent you?</p>
