WOBURN, Mass., June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The summer can bring a bounty from the garden: red ripe tomatoes, warm from the sun, cool cucumbers, sweet strawberries, fragrant flowers in a rainbow of colors . . . but for many home gardeners enjoying the harvest and keeping plants and soil healthy in a natural and organic way can be a challenge. This season, don't just 'plant, spray and pray,' get dirty with Arborjet's new line of natural and organic home garden care products, featuring ARBORChar™, AzaSol™, NutriRoot®, Eco-Mite Plus® and Eco-PM®.
The Dirt On Dirt™ is a collaboration between Arborjet, whose patented "Tree Injection Technology" and formulations have revolutionized how trees are cared for and treated worldwide, and a group of courageous garden enthusiasts who enjoy sharing their knowledge and love of gardening. Both support a sustainable approach and use of products that create a healthy gardening lifestyle, which is evident on The Dirt on Dirt's new website which educates, empowers, and motivates everyone to cultivate their own gardens, provide food for their families, and of course, get dirty!
This is great news for the 90 million households who participated in do-it-yourself lawn and gardening activities last year, (according to the 2015 National Gardening Association (NGA) Survey). In fact, Millennials are driving the gardening revolution, having grown up in the current boom of sustainable awareness and practices. Having doubled their spending on (food) gardening, from $632 million in 2008 to $1.2 billion in 2013 (2014 NGA Survey), 5 million of the 6 million 'new' gardening households in 2015 were Millennials (2015 NGA Survey).
"With so many more people concerned about what's going into their food and environment, and feeling the need to not only shop local but also grow their own food, we felt compelled to create The Dirt On Dirt™," said Kristin Nikodemski, Marketing Manager, Arborjet and The Dirt On Dirt™. "We saw a need for truly sustainable home garden care, and developed this new line of horticulture products that have minimal or NO environmental impact. They're all natural and/or organic, ideal for use in all garden environments –vertical walls, windowboxes, smaller, indoor spaces - and provide a perfect foundation for GIY™ (Grow It Yourself) home gardeners to nurture a healthy, thriving garden while using products they can be confident are good for their plants, good for their soil, and safe for their family."
Introducing Arborjet's Gardening Line:
Supercharge your soil with award-winning ARBORChar! This premium fertilizer and biochar blend has all natural ingredients - biochar made from recycled, sustainably grown hardwood trees into an activated carbon soil enhancer that adds air and holds biology; and fertilizer made of organic bloodmeal and bonemeal to enhance leaf vigor and create stronger roots for indoor and outdoor plants. With a neutralized PH, ARBORChar also delivers an impressive 10 times its weight in water holding capacity. Available in three versions: All Purpose Grow 5-6-4; Root, Flower & Fruit 3-6-4; and Summer Stress 0-0-9. (MSRP $14.99, 1 lb.)
Get ahead of garden pests before they arrive with AzaSol, a non-oil based, water soluble powder made from the botanical plant Neem. OMRI® Listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute, and meeting the highest standards for organic accountability, AzaSol can be applied to food crops and harvested the same day. Absorbed through leaves or roots, it has no smell or oily residue, and won't burn plant leaves. AzaSol keeps pests from feeding, growing and reproducing, and can also be used on more delicate plants, seedlings or cuttings that would be more susceptible to burning. ($19.99 MSRP, 0.25 oz.).
A unique blend of nutrients, seaweed extract, humic acid, surfactants, and humectants, NutriRoot is the only water management + fertilizer system available on the market today. Designed to increase root development, and reduce water stress and transplant shock in your trees, shrubs, and lawn, NutriRoot pulls water out of the air and condenses it back into liquid form. This helps reduce watering and keeps the soil moist so when you do water, it's more easily absorbed.
(MSRP $12.99, 8 fl. oz., $36.99 32 fl. oz. Hose End).
Eco-Mite Plus® and Eco-PM®
Got pests or diseases? Not anymore with Eco-Mite Plus and Eco-PM. Made from high quality botanical plant oils and extracts for naturally protected plants, these products are safe for use on food crops and can be harvested the same day. Eco-Mite Plus works on contact against mites, aphids, mealybugs and more. Eco-Mite PM controls powdery mildew, rust, black spot and other diseases. (MSRP $19.99, 32 fl. oz.).
