I have a big problem with weeds in my garden, would this help with garden soil and this product to help reduce the weeds???
Ladybug7!!! on Oct 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a plant starter to help root development in new transplants. It is not intended for use as a weed control.
Would this help with plants or trees that are not growing ? I have a 2yr pomegranate that is still 2 feet tall and a 6 month fig not growing much?
Jose C on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We recommend you do a soil test before you purchase any kind of fertilizer. That way you will know exactly what your soil is missing. Do a soil pH test as well; it may be that the soil needs to be amended to be either more alkaline or more acidic. Pomegranates prefer between 5.5 to 7.0, and fig trees like the soil to be between 6.0 to 6.5.
Would this be good to use on strawberry plugs as a soak right before planting for hydroponic use?
vinceandrose v on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have only used this on my fruit trees, and it worked excellently. I think for the small investment, I would purchase a specialty amendment specifically for strawberries. Since it takes two years to get a good crop, why chance it going wrong. Also, I have never soaked strawberries in anything but water, always made a pyramid mound to spread the roots over, watered them after they have been planted, and then about a week later watered again with water amended with a specialty strawberry amendment. Good Luck!!! Nothing better than a sugar sweet fresh strawberry for breakfast, dinner, supper and late night snack.
Can you use this product after transplanting within a certain time frame? I have a few trees I transplanted a week ago and did not have this at the time.
David T on Sep 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should be no problem I have used this product a few months after planting for a boost and had no problems.

can I use it on bare rooted trees when planting and on potted trees when planting?
Usama T on Sep 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, can be used for both situations.
Can this product be used for fall planting?
Phil R on Nov 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Even though this is a mild fertilizer, it's not advisable to fertilize in the fall because it encourages tender new growth that will be damaged by frost/sub-freezing temperatures. Always wait until spring to fertilize.
Does this help vegetable plants like pumpkin, watermelon, musk melon etc. ... ?
Kevin H on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is excellent for all new trees/plants. It contains important micronutrients that help establish a strong and healthy root system. It's kind of like an immune-system booster for plants. :-)
