Pearl's Premium

Pearl's Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed is a breakthrough, barefoot-soft, award-winning lawn seed that was the result of 10 years of intense research into all natural, native and adaptive grasses. Pearl's Premium grass, sprouts in 7-10 days, grows to a lush thick 1" tall in a month, then slows down, so you mow it only once a month in sunny areas or once every six weeks in shady areas - rather than mowing every week, as with other grasses. Pearl's Premium grass seed grows roots four times deeper than most grass. The 12-14" deep roots reach water and nutrients deep in the soil. Between the deep roots and slow growth, Pearl's Premium needs between 1/2 to 1/4 the water of other grass, after it is established. Now in over 150,000 lawns, Pearl's Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed grows in all climates. No GMOs and all-natural, this grass never needs chemical fertilizer to stay green all year long, to be "People, Pet & Planet Friendly."    Pearl's Premium has received over 300 rave reviews by the experts including "Popular Science" and "This Old House" magazines, plus reviewers at ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News, Boston Globe and Wall Street Journal and home improvement expert Bob Vila. Winner of an award from the Boston Museum of Science for being one of the three most important inventions to come out of New England, but grows in all 50 states and foreign countries. Also won the coveted international MassChallenge prize for innovation out of a field of 446 entries from 26 countries.  This is a family-owned business that hires the handicapped and gives a significant amount of money and grass seed to causes related to environmental education, children, animals and gives free educational workshops all over the country.

Smart Pots

High Caliper Growing High Caliper Growing, the manufacturer of the Smart Pot and the Big Bag Bed, was founded in 1984. But the story began four years earlier when Ralph Reiger put together some fabric containers at his tree farm in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Ralph hoped the in-ground fabric bags would make harvesting large caliper trees easy. The trees were dug in 1982, and two years later Ralph, working out of the basement of his house, incorporated and began selling his new “Root Control Bags” to the nursery industry. Today, High Caliper Growing is the green industry leader in manufacturing breathable, soft-sided containers for plant growers. After years in the garden and nursery, we know that the container you use will effect the growth of your plant. The Smart Pot fabric aeration container and the Big Bag Bed fabric raised bed are the best-growing containers for your plants. And our products are made in Oklahoma, USA. Smart Pots

Wilt Proof

Sixty years ago WILT-PRUF® was discovered and became the first antitranspirant on the market. A product such as this was needed in horticulture to enable nurserymen to transplant shrubs and trees any time of year without fear of excessive transpiration which could cause plant failure.Over the years, it was discovered that anti-transpirants had many additional but related uses -- protection against drying out when evergreen roots were frozen in wintertime, as well as during periods of drought. These times of stress deprive plants of their normal moisture intake. Anti-transpirants were found to be effective on cut Christmas trees, wreaths, and greens to retard needle drop by keeping existing moisture in the foliage. It was discovered that many indoor plants could survive longer periods without watering by treatment with an anti-transpirant. And ornamentals exposed to excessive warm or cold winds were protected from drying out by spraying with an anti-transpirant. Storage of tubers, bulbs, and bare root stock was more successful when they were first dipped in an anti-transpirant solution.Phone: 1-800-972-0726
