Our most requested product, Milky Spore, is available this season. Milky Spore Powder is a one time application applied to your ground or lawn, giving you a 10-year performance guarantee and is not harmful to man, animals or the environment. It is harmless to beneficial insects and is safe around wells, ponds and streams. The natural bacteria kills the grub stage of the Japanese Beetle. Just one spore consumed by a grub will multiply into 3 billion new spores when the grub dies. Milky Spore protects your yard even if your neighbors do nothing. Milky Spore granular can be applied to lawn, flower and mulch beds using a drop spreader and must be applied spring, summer and fall for two years and can last for up to 20 years! Milky Spore is used for organic gardening. 

Another new product this year is FreezePruf, a frost protector for ornamental, fruit and vegetable plants. It is a non- toxic spray that protects a plant’s foliage and flowers, externally and systemically, and improves freeze tolerance up to 9.4 degrees for up to six weeks. It allows you to plant earlier in spring and extend your season in the fall! 

In 2008 we had requests from our customers for the products Deer Scram™  and Rabbit Scram™  as they heard good things about it from their neighbors and friends. In Spring of 2009 we started to carry this product and have had a good response to it. Customers say, "this product works."  It does not have a bad odor and is used for organic gardening. Deer Scram is a granular that you sprinkle on the ground or grass to form a perimeter around your garden. It is 100% biodegradable, will not wash off in normal rainfall, will not harm plants or animals and safe around children and pets.
