Foliar-Pak Grow-In is our swiss army knife. Initially, Grow-In was developed to offer customers a complete turfgrass establishment program with the use of a single product. But as time passed, we noticed Grow-In was useful for seeding projects as well as achieving incredible results on trees and ornamentals. Grow-In had evolved into a complete establishment program for turfgrass along with a powerhouse for rapid seed germination and a complete nutrition package for trees, shrubs, bedding plants, and hanging baskets. In this article, we are going to explore the tree and ornamental side of Grow-In.

The Benefits of Grow-In on Trees and Ornamentals

Grow-In is an all-in-one product designed to help trees and ornamental plants flourish. It is easy to use and effective for plant maintenance and establishment. When it comes to recovery, Grow-In helps plants recover from both biotic and abiotic stressors. It contains a complete set of nutrients, including minors. With the technology of Armament, AminoPrecise, and Colonise Bio, Grow-In protects nutrients in the soil, optimizes nutrient uptake, and promotes plant resilience. Specifically, Armament technology increases nutrient uptake by as much as 30%. It also produces deeper, stronger roots in trees and ornamental plants.

General Use

First water bedding plants, hanging baskets, shrubs, and trees as needed without any fertilizer. Once the soil is appropriately saturated, use 2-3 oz Foliar-Pak Grow-In per 1 gallon of water. Drench only the soil; do not drench the foliage.

Bedding Plants and Hanging Baskets:

For each smaller annual plant, use 8 ounces (1 cup) of finished solution per plant. For larger, established annual plants, use 16 ounces (2 cups) of finished solution per plant. For hanging baskets, use 16-24 ounces of finished solution depending on the size of the hanging basket. For optimal results, fertilize every 1-2 weeks with standard watering in between fertilizer applications.

Shrubs and Trees:

Drench 1 gal of finished solution per 1’’ diameter of tree or shrub. For new plantings, drench at planting and again at 4 weeks. Optimal results can be achieved if drenching is continued on a 4-week schedule. Established plantings can be drenched in the spring and in the fall. More applications can be made if desired.
