Grower Prescription© is a very basic range of chemicals that are necessary for plant care at home, sold in minimal quantities to reduce home care costs, no need to buy large amounts of commercially marketed plant care products.
This is a simplified range which has done away with the gimmicks and proprietary names associated with plant care. Use exactly what the grower uses in the nursery to achieve great results.
We do not recommend any home remedies or kitchen scraps for growth or pest control strategies.
You will need to provide your own spray bottles, our range comes with sticker labels to mark the spray bottles for easy reference.
Please read all information provided and keep chemicals out of reach of children, always mix in a well ventilated area and wear gloves if possible.
PLEASE NOTE - always contact us if you are unsure of an issue before treating your plant, also a lot of commercial nurseries these days use live predatory beneficial bugs to control pests, please contact us if you see bugs on your plants as they may be guardians.
