Liquinox Vitamin B-1 Plus is an excellent, low-cost plant tonic used in the transplanting and establishing of container and bare-root shrubs, trees, roses and bedding stock. The combination of Vitamin B-1 with essential micro nutrients forms a highly effective mixture. It stimulates the formation of feeder roots and lessens the chances of transplant shock and plant stress. When transplanting container plants, mix 2 tablespoons of B-1 in 1 gallon of water and saturate the soil around the plant immediately after transplanting. The mixture for bare-root stock is 1 tablespoon per gallon. For bedding plants, flowers and vegetables, mix 3 tablespoons per gallon of water and apply to each 100 feet of row or 100 square feet immediately after planting.
Did you know about the phenomenon of soil transference? Simply put, moisture will not move readily from one kind of soil to another. So, don't put a dry root ball in a planting hole and then water the surrounding soil! Water the container plant thoroughly before transplanting, and water it again, with the surrounding soil, afterwards. Avoid over watering new plants. Before planting, check the drainage by filling each hole with water. If it drains completely in less than 3 hours, you're in good shape. If water remains, consider drilling a drainage hole to siphon off excess water, or planting in a soil mound to insure proper drainage. New plants need a steady supply of moisture, but will rot if the soil stays too wet. See our pages for Dr. Q's Plant Tonic and Superthrive for additional plant tonic choices. Check our list of irrigation supplies to fill your sprinkler and drip irrigation requirements. We also have a complete line of hoses, hose accessories and tools for all your gardening needs.
