|I just discovered an open bag of Holland Bulb Booster, indoors in a dim spot. its probably been there for at least five years. Is is still usable? Or could I put it in my compost?|

|I would add it to my compost.

|The MSDS sheet for "Holland Bulb Booster" gives these ingredients:
Potassium chloride, KCl
Potassium nitrate, KNO3
I would not expect any of those to ever go bad, unless it is able to release some ammonia, and thus have less N after many years of storage. They do say:
Chemically Stable: Yes
Conditions to avoid: Damp or wet conditions. Extreme heat.
But if they add some organic ingredients to it that the MSDS doesn't list, I guess it might possibly go bad. If it got soggy, trust it less.
I guess the name says it all: "Holland Bulb Booster ® Fertilizer, 9-9-6"
It's just 9-9-6 fertilizer.
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!
