How destructive fungus diseases can be to your garden plants?
An organic product from the Gardens Alive! Catalog called SoilGard helps prevent fusarium wilt, root rot, damping-off and other fungus diseases that can plague seedlings and growing plants. Its active ingredient, Fliocladium virens, is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus found in soils all over the world.
SoilGard contains a high concentration of a particularly effective strain of Gliocladuim virens that was recently isolated by scientists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. SoilGard can be used preventively on vegetable crops and flowering annuals.
Just mix SoilGard with your potting soil when starting seeds indoors. When planting outdoors, sprinkle SoilGard over seeds before covering the seeds with soil. One application gives season-long control.
SoilGard is actually beneficial, not detrimental, to the environment, said Niles Kinerk, president of Gardens Alive! Unlike chemical fungicides, SoilGard won't leach chemicals into the groundwater.
We're Sorry but SoilGard isn't available at this time.
