To send your condolences, visit 00gthen pna this season with a new tq for gardeners By gardening expert, W/radio host, au!hor & columnist MEL!ND. A MYERS As gardeners well know, there are plenty of challengeg our landscapes will face throughout the growing season• Heat, drought, ]aests and dgeae • e-all all take their toll on our plants, causing wilting, browj damaged plants and even plant death• Fortunately, gardeners now have an exciting new or- ganic tool for growing healthy, productive, and beautiful land- scapes all season long. Researchers have discov- ered that when some plants are stressed they produce certain molecules that help them bet ter tolerate environmental stresses as well as insect and disease attacks• They isolated the molecules and applied them to other plants• This im- proved the treated pnts' own natural defenses, much like im- munizations do for us. All natural plant strengthen-ers, like JAZ Spray, were developed as a result of these findings•. Plant strengtheners immunize plants against environmental stresses such as heat and drought, while building their defenses against insects and diseases• They are not fertilizers .that provide nutrients, nor are they pesticides that kill the insects and disease organisms. This new tool can help gardeners deal with gar- dening challenges that are be- yond their control. By using a plant strengthener you are proactively boosting a plant's immune system before environ- mental stresses hit and ultimately helping it thrive as it faces seri- ous challenges throughout the season• Because these natural plant- derived products improve plant health and resilience by strength- ening their resistance to plant stressors, including heat, drought, over-watering, insects and dis- ease, they've become a valuable and must-have tool for both be- ginning and experienced garden- ers specially given the variable and unpredictable weather pat- terns .we've experienced in recent years• They can also increase gar- effective when applied at the first sign of stress or when moving plants indoors for winter, since the lower light and lower humid- ,ity conditions can be very stress- ful on these plantS. Prepare your plants for the growing season by arming your- self with.this exciting new line of organic products that are safe for pets, kids and the environ- ment. And always remember that proper soil preparation, plant selection, and care are also critical in growing beautiful, productive and healthy plants. Monitor your plants' health throughout the growing sea- son. Uncovering problems early may be the difference be- tween a little clean up and the need to treat. And, if treatment is needed, look for the most eco-friendly products avail- able. Investing a bit of time and energy now to lay the founda- tion for a healthy and produc- tive landscape will surely pay off with low maintenance, beautiful gardens for years to come.
