Trying to find an effective organically based garden spray is like finding a needle in a haystack. I am sure you can relate to your own trial and error. Each year I read up on a product, source check any reviews and put it to the test. This year, I finally found my one product solution: Eco-1 Garden Spray by Arborjet. This product truly delivers what it claims. Even weeks of continuous rain did not compromise this product’ s effectiveness. This garden spray met my finicky gardener’s expectations. As you know, I do not routinely endorse a particular product, but this is one you will want to have in your garden arsenal for the 2019 season.
I stumbled upon this new garden spray through literature I received from Arborjet. It came last winter with my usual pile of “new product and plant” communications. I put it in the pile with all the others to read when I had a chance. When I did read the promotional brochure, this product really stood out from the pile. Eco-1 promised to control whiteflies, mites, aphids, as well as diseases like powdery mildew, black spot and rust. It was also, “GARDEN PUP FRIENDLY”. Tucker my Garden Pup spends all season running through my gardens. So I need to find a safe, yet effective garden spray that will organically manage insects and diseases. Many of my clients are pet owners or have children/grandchildren gardening alongside them. A product that is pet and people safe is important for my garden practices.
I decided to use the product exclusively last season and run my own trial. I found it very effective in managing the host of problems I experience with shrub roses. The latter part of our 2018 garden season was incredibly rainy. Despite the constant rain, this product eliminated powdery mildew and other wet season diseases with a biweekly application. In addition, insect infestation was not evident. This was a huge advantage for my garden business. I schedule schedule biweekly garden maintenance account visits. A long lasting product is critical to assuring my gardens health and production. I chose to use the product pro-actively, spraying at the beginning of the growing season long before I observed problems. It became a regular part of my maintenance practice.
Arborjet literature describes Eco-1 garden spray as “a blend of high quality, organically sourced botanical oils”. It smells great and can be safely used on edible crops. It boasts OMRI Listed certified organic and most importantly, is MADE IN USA. I also appreciate that this garden spray can be used both indoors and outdoors. I host a number of Fairy Garden workshops and have begun recommending this for the pesky insects and diseases often seen with indoor plant growing.
Based on my product trial last season, the Eco-1 Garden Spray is on my supply ordering list for 2019 gardens. You can go to http://thedirtondirt.com to learn more about, the product order online or find a local retailer. The company shares my sustainable garden philosophy, so I am onboard with this one! As always, keeping “common sense and sustainability” at the core of all my garden practices.
