Since 1929, The Espoma Company has been the pioneer in natural gardening solutions. Throughout this time, almost everything that could change has changed. The Espoma product line has expanded tremendously, their geographic distribution has grown enormously, and automation has significantly changed the way they manufacture their products. But the core philosophy that has guided four generations of family ownership has remained the same – develop and formulate only the highest quality, natural products possible. That’s why every ounce of Espoma plant foods is manufactured in an Espoma plant, under their supervision, and held to their high, strict standards. No fillers, sludges, or inert ingredients are ever used in Espoma natural plant foods. Whether it’s plant foods, lawn foods, controls, or potting mixes, Espoma products work in harmony with nature to grow beautiful lawns & gardens.
