There are other brands of urea free fertilizer around that are available by mail order if not available in stores in your area. I personally prefer urea free, but have used fertilizer in the past that had urea. I can't say that I noticed a big difference that I could attribute to urea or not. There is somewhat a debate on urea free or not by the fertilizer heads out there, but I have seen really beautiful plants using either fertilizer. I suspect that there are other factors than just urea or not in play.
