Enthusiastic gardeners and houseplant growers just love every specific Dr. Earth Organic Fertilizer blend. We in particular love the Dr. Earth succulent fertilizer that is branded as Root Zone. Succulents can be particularly sensitive to the wrong type of chemical fertilizer or to over fertilizing. We have found the Dr. Earth cactus fertilizer, Root Zone formulation, is safe and extremely effective. The following video describes how simple it is to apply Dr. Earth fertilizers and why they benefit so much.
Plant regulating cycles occurred for millions of years. The great thing about using the Dr. Earth product is if you apply it during a time of year where it’s cold the product doesn’t go anywhere. The fertilizer sits in the soil until the microbes make it available for the plant to use it as it needs it.
When the plants are ready for it.
When the plants are ready for it. That’s a great thing about it.
You’ve got some soil here, I take it you want us to plant something.
I want to plant something up here. That’s a white shirt and a white shirt I can roll up into my sleeves. Okay, okay all right, so why don’t we plant it so this would be to let people know, let people know how much you use. Okay, well this is just a mock-up kind of planting here right.
But basically you would use approximately four to five tablespoons per gallon – per one gallon of soil. All right and really the great thing about organics is it’s there’s no exact science. If you use a little bit more a little bit less it’s okay. When you’re dealing with chemicals you have to really be very careful how you apply the fertilizer.
But you would simply just take the fertilizer product broadcast it on the surface, stir it in with your hand a little bit. I’m going to grab a tomato. All right help me with that please Mike. I’ll be glad to do that okay thank you and it’s always a good idea to remove the lower leaves. Right and we talked about that before the show because they’ll send roots exactly these guys will send roots within about a week or so. It’s not correct when you simply take the tomato plop it in.
Now with people if they’re doing that when would they have to repeat this? Depending on the soil temperature apply it again within two to three months.
All right so maybe sometimes if there’s a short period if they’re growing in a climate with the short season one applications enough for the entire season. So here if you’re going to do at a time of planting you might want to do it again maybe mid-summer. Mid-summer would be a good time.
Okay yes I just repeat it around the top. Let’s assume then this has already been growing for an entire season or so. Mid-summer you would simply come back broadcast them on the surface just like that lightly scratch it in water it down and you’re good to go. All you have to do and the plants taken care for another two months.
And we should let people know just so they know we’re at Portland nursery. So if they heard a plane flying over cars I’m just saying we’re the one on star so busy plays a lot of people here.
It’s a nice day and this would be one of your good dealers here. This is one of our great dealers show. Yes okay Portland is doing a really good job for us. All right well oh I think this is great I mean I think people see the name but there’s like the semi-paralyzed you know what distinguishes you from the other.
TruBiotic! TruBiotics just like that Milo.
Thank you very much.
