    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    It's good stuff and you use a lot less Scotts to get the same results as Shirleys. I think its about one third from memory, plus you can also get Scotts with wetting agent added in, weed treatment added in and stuff like that.
