    Fertilizer? I would think you could spread it out on the lawn.

    Yes, spread it on the lawn, field or woods. It’s rather harmless.

    I have always heard to use it for fertilizer. I am not sure of the chemical makeup of the subs, but true black is all natural.

    Safest thing would be to pour it into a bucket of water, stir and dump.
