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 


Summit Responsible Solutions

Summit Mosquito Dunks® are America’s favorite biological mosquito control because Dunks kill mosquitoes before they’re old enough to bite®. The active ingredient in Mosquito Dunks® is BTI (Bacillus thuringiensisisraelensis), a bacterium that’s deadly to mosquito larvae but harmless to other living things. Just float biodegradable Mosquito Dunks® in ponds, birdbaths, fountains or wherever water collects to kill mosquito larvae for up to 30 days. Mosquito Dunks® are organic and approved for use in fish habitats and animal watering troughs. Mosquito Bits® contain the same active ingredient as Mosquito Dunks®, and they are approved for the control of fungus gnats in container gardens and potted plants. Summit Year-Round® Spray Oil is an OMRI-approved horticultural oil that kills a wide range of insect pests. Summit Biological Caterpillar & Webworm Control contains 100% natural BTK, which kills caterpillars and webworms but has no effect on birds, earthworms, or beneficial insects such as honeybees and ladybugs.

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
