Andrew: Mosquito Bits

Andrew is a fan of Mosquito Bits because they make getting rid of pesky mosquitos a breeze!

Marshy swampy areas inundated with Mosquito larvae? Sprinkle Mosquito Bits as a shock to quickly annihilate the larval population. Mosquito Bits are labeled to control Mosquitos & Fungus Gnats in plant beds or pots! The Bits, either sprinkled on the soil’s surface or mixed with potting soil prior to planting will kill fungus gnat larvae with the same safety and target specific control offered for mosquito larvae. Corn cob granules coated in BTI, the Bits provide a punch turning water once black with larvae, to a clear pool rid of future mosquitoes. A week after application, supplement with Mosquito Dunks and for long term control or continue to add Bits on a bi-weekly basis.

Randi: Garden Guide & BI Seed Starting Pots

These Seed Pots are made with recycled cardboard, making them eco friendly and great for seedlings with fragile root systems that are sensitive to disturbances! They will break down if planted in ground, or they can be added to your composter.

Danielle: Neem & Pump Up Sprayer

Danielle is a firm believer in Neem as a remedy for a wide array of indoor plant problems! It can work as an insecticide, fungicide, and even as a leaf shine!

The Pump Up Sprayer is also on her list because it mists plants just right while keeping your hand & wrist from getting sore. This handheld option is great for those looking for a smaller sprayer option.

Microlife Cactus & Succulent Food is one of the best fertilizers around for those types of plants! Feeding them according to the directions on the package will ensure the most growth from your plants.

Root Stimulator helps root development by supplying natural plant growth hormones that are found in kelp. As a natural bio-stimulant, it helps plants through the stress of transplanting and enhances the growth of beneficial soil microorganisms that support plant growth and nutrient absorption.

Whitney: Rose Glo & Liquid Seaweed

Whitney loves Rose Glo and Seaweed because both help with plant health and encourage growth without causing stress to your plants.

Rose Glo is the premier organic rose fertilizer on the market, with the highest nutrient content that happens to also be great for vegetables, annuals, tropicals, and other blooming plants as well! Rose Glo contains a wide variety of high nutrient materials including humates, feather meal, bone meal, worm castings, alfalfa meal, and compost for more colorful blooms and rich green foliage!

Liquid Seaweed acts like a super charge tonic for your plants. Plants readily absorb Liquid Seaweed through their leaves and roots, making them stronger with more vibrant color and more resistant to things like stress, pests, and diseases. Seaweed is also an excellent root stimulator and new plant starter.

Christi: Plant Doctor

Christi loves Plant Doctor because, to put it plainly, it works! She identifies as a “lazy gardener” so anything that will make her gardening easier, she’s all about it!

Organocide® Plant Doctor is an earth-friendly broad spectrum disease control and preventative for use on turf, fruit trees, vegetables, ornamentals, and flowers. It prevents and cures a myriad of plant diseases, including those that cause downy mildew, root rot, leaf and stem blights, leaf spots and many others!

Samantha: Skeeter Screen Yard Sticks & Systemic Granules

Samantha swears by systemic granules as being an easy way to ensure her houseplants are protected against pests without having to treat constantly or add extra steps to her care routine. Adding these in while potting gives her extra peace of mind about the health of her plants. Simply sprinkle the directed amount over the soil and water in! Pests will be gone within days.

She also is a fan of the Skeeter Screen Yard Sticks. These giant incense sticks are great for outdoor gatherings to keep mosquitos at bay. The smoke will cause mosquitos to leave the area, making it a perfect temporary solution to keep your guests from being bit!

Sam: Liquid Seaweed & Superthrive

Sam likes the Seaweed and Superthrive combo because they helped his plants to stay healthy through our extreme temperature and moisture changes. The most important time to make sure you’re using these products is when the season is changing! Foliage sprays with Liquid Seaweed help fortify the plant from the outside in, while watering in superthrive is the equivalent of your plant taking it’s vitamins! You can’t go wrong with either of these products!

Bruce: Gardening Gloves & Wind Chimes

Bruce enjoys the color variety of gloves and thinks they are a must for all avid gardeners who spend most of their time in the dirt! He also doesn’t think your outdoor space is complete without wind chimes! There are so many options of sizes and tones, choose one that you find to be the most relaxing and hear the difference it will make!

Molly: Leca Balls & Ocean Harvest Fertilizer

Molly has been using Leca and Ocean Harvest Fertilizer, to rehab some Orchids and all are thriving! For more information on how to use Leca as a growing medium, visit this helpful website!

Ocean Harvest is the liquid version of granular MicroLife 6-2-4. Use as a foliar nutritional spray, bio-stimulate, mineralizer, microbial enhancer, and as a complete fertilizer. Ocean Harvest 4-2-3 is fast acting as it is readily absorbed through the leaves and roots. Plants become stronger with more beautiful color and are more resistant to problems of stress, pests, and disease.

Gregg: Systemic Granules

Gregg uses systemic granules on all his potted plants and has not had one pest problem which gives him peace of mind! It Is especially important to treat new plants you bring home after purchasing! Pests unfortunately come with the territory, so treating plants for pests before you even know if they have them will ensure a breakout doesn’t happen! Pests are easily treatable especially when caught early, but if left untreated, they become overrun and will suck the life from your plant then move to other plants in your home! Systemic Granules ensure your new plant will have no pests!

Ella: Garden Buckets

Ella enjoys using the garden buckets because they last longer than regular 5 gallon buckets, they’re easier to carry, and never get stuck together! These have multiple uses in and out of the garden, and a reliable bucket is something everyone should have on hand!

Esther: Bean Seeds

Esther is crazy about bean seeds because they grow extremely fast and are known to bring nitrogen to the other plants around them! Click here to shop seeds on our online store!

Jacob: Microlife Ultimate 8-4-6

Jacob swears he cannot grow any plants without Microlife 8-4-6!

This is the most powerful, most nutritional fertilizer possible yet will not burn. 100% slow release, an ‘Organic Osmocote’ but with over 100 + nutrients, minerals, vitamins, natural plant hormones, natural plant stimulators, essential sugars/amino acids/carbon/protein and billions of beneficial microbes representing 76 different species. In addition the extra NPK punch we drop in extra rock minerals so this product will rock with goodness. Awesome for all new plant starts. You will not need anything else to get your plants started.

Rowan: Perlite & Orchid Bark & Potting Mix

Rowan is a fan of mixing her own soil for all her tropicals! Regular potting mix alone can be to heavy and hold too much moisture for certain plants which ultimately can lead to rot. She adds perlite and orchid bark mix to the potting soil medium before repotting her plants! They help to aerate the soil, allowing water to drain through and the soil to dry out more quickly! She also recommends mixing in a slow release fertilizer such as Microlife 6-2-4!

Rebecca: Charcoal

Rebecca prefers using Charcoal as a soil amendment because of its aeration, mineral boost, and ability to soak up any lingering unpleasant smells in soil! Whenever she repots, she adds a bit of charcoal before mixing it together and repotting her plant! They all seem thankful for the extra additive!
