Re: Fertilizing Iris: Nutri-Brew


Hi--I'm one of those nursery operators crazy about Nutri-Brew.  We've
been using it for about 10 years, both as a potting additive and as a bed
compost.  

It is a formula developed with the aid of NYS Dept of Environmental
Conservation, and includes several fillers, including diatomaceous earth,
but is primarily brewery waste, as Chris says.  It's pH is slightly on
the alkaline side of neutral, and it is an excellent weed-free compost
and soil conditioner. 

Nutri-Brew was originally sold as All-Gro, but I believe the All-Gro
formulation has changed.  It was developed by the A-B Brewery here in
Baldwinsville, NY (near Syracuse) because of a peculiarity in the NYS DEC
waste disposal regs, and is still made there.  If you have an
Anheuzer-Busch brewery nearby, you might inquire if they make it. 
Although we buy it in bulk, it is distributed at some garden centers and
nurseries (including ours) in 45-lb bags.   The primary distributor is
Commodity Specialists Co, PO Box 610, Baldwinsville NY 13027,att: Mary
Holland.

As a light mulch (1") on existing beds once or twice a year, it seems to
inhibit weeds, and 
releases nutrients gradually.  The most enticing aspect of its use is
that over a period of a few years it greatly increases the tilth of the
soil.  Earthworms love it and increase where it is used--always a good
thing!  I'm not much of a soils chemist, but I believe the formulation
increases microrhizal activity.
