If you take 75 South, you could stop in at Northaven Gardens. Would that work for you?

I'm still thinking...Anyone else have an idea?


Hey that will work for me it's only about six and a half miles away from where I am. Do they carry a pretty good selection of organic products and how is their pricing? :D

I don't guess the sprayer you used was ever used for applying a herbicide?

I used a new hand sprayer. I used the same batch for all my plants. The tomatoes responded quite nicely to the spray except for one young tomato. Where the spray accumulated into a half drop it did create a little blemish( a brown slightly rough area )

How about experimenting by diluting further the foliar feed? I can see the seedling being sensitive, but not the Coneflower. I have no experience with Oriental Persimmon or Gotu Kola. Have you experienced these plants being sensitive in the past? Are the affected plants recovering?

I apologize for not having a more definitive answer on this problem. Experimentation is part of the process.

I started using GJ recently. Since I discontinued use about 3 weeks ago the plants that were affected have recovered. New growth does not have the problem. The seedlings are having a little bit harder time recovering.

My suspicion is what Bluestem mentioned. My own compost is not quite ready yet, so I will hold off making a new batch of the foliar spray until I have my own compost tea. At that time I might do a little experiment with some seedlings.

Thank you for all your comments and suggestions.

Hopefully, everything will recover and this will be just a bad memory 8)

Good luck to you and your gardens.

Why would you freeze aerobic living microbes that you need to improve your plants and soil?

Any leftover tea juice or solid tea remains, that you don't have use for right now, just toss it into your compost pile, or bury it in your garden soil.

That's the best place to put your microherd.

Here's the FAQ on aerated teas on the composting forum on this site:

Happy Gardening!
