anyone tried these products?

I was at a local store that's new, it's all for organic gardening. I saw these two items and decided to get them.

they're both made by Down To Earth in Eugene, OR.

I go the Corn Weed blocker and the Bio Live fertilizer, all organic & chemical free.

I can't wait to see how well they work. Anyone else tried these before?

I assume the Corn Weed Blocker is Corn Gluten?

A friend recommended the Organic Lawn Care Manual to me... [url]https://www.amazon.com/Organic-Lawn-Care-Manual-Low-Maintenance/dp/1580176496/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1302052844&sr=8-1[/url]

I haven't been able to purchase that book yet (it's moving up my wish list :D )... but, I believe it recommends Corn Gluten as an organic pre-emergent herbicide.

Yup thats corn gluten meal.

I put a bit of the fertilizer in my beds, can't wait to see if it helps.

Rainbowgardener made a post yesterday in the Lawn Care forum about her experience using corn gluten meal for weed control:
