  • Treat for citrus leaf minor now before the damage is done to your lush foliage! As unsightly tunnels in young leaves result in loss of hardiness and vigor, we recommend treating with Captain Jack’s Organic Deadbug Brew now through July to prevent damage in August. Apply to your citrus 6 to 10 days apart and wait a minimum of 1 day before harvesting. Containing Spinosad, a natural bacterium first discovered in an old rum distillery in the Caribbean, Captain Jack’s is safe around children and pets.

  • Reduce your water usage this summer with an application of Hydretain. The blend of humectin and hygroscopic compounds adheres the free moisture in the soil to the roots of your plant. Hydretain not only keeps your plants wilt-free, but contributes to more water intake from rainfall and irrigation throughout the season. Available in both liquid and granular form, apply the formula and water in deeply for roughly 15-20 minutes for 3 days to bond Hydretain to the roots. Reapply the formula once every 3 months; one quart treats up to 3,500 square feet. Questions? Our knowledgeable staff is here to help you keep your garden green through summer!
