Have used this brand for over 25 years, imparts frost tolerance to delicate plants my lettuces froze 32 times down to 22 degrees F, and thawed out 32 times- not a scratch!Review by meekone (on 7/24/13)
My experience with Maxicrop has been positive. I use it during propagation as well as crop production. Somebody gave me a weak little fig cutting with few roots. After one Maxicrop soaking, the root ball expanded so it doesn't give when I pull on the cutting, and new leaves are budding out. I use Maxicrop in my hose-end sprayer on vegies and landscaping. Plants are healthier as a result. I like having the dry powder around. Maxicrop keeps better when dry, and I can make only the solution I need. (Keep sealed in air-tight container, or it will absorb humidity and turn into a chunk!)Review by Howard (on 4/9/13)
You can't go wrong with kelp!! I used this when planting seedlings and they did incredible.Review by Katie (on 12/19/12)
I use this product whenever I transplant anything and helps with the shock. It works wonders on seedlings helping them to become strong and sturdy.Review by Linnie (on 12/12/12)
I really liked this kelp product. The powdered form is much easier for me to store than the liquid. Roses love this stuff, so do the fruit trees... actually everything loves this stuff. I mix up a batch and just go on a spray-a-thon around the garden. It's gentle and was wonderful for my seedlings to my fruit trees.Review by Stephanie (on 12/10/12)
For many years I have been totally amazed at what this fine product brings to the enrichment of the garden.Back in the day we'd have to pilgrimidge to Redway or Whitethorne to find somebody that knew somebody that was splitting-up a 50 pound bag!Thier products are all good,but, i prefer the dry granules stored in a glass jar...Review by Mkiey&Spikey (on 6/23/12)
