The library section's Garrett Juice entry says to use 1.5 cups of Garrett Juice concentrate with 1 gallon of water.

The back of the bottle of Garrett Juice Plus I just received from Soilmender says to use 1 cup with 1 gallon of water (8 oz. per 1 gallon)

Is this correct?

I thought I heard a caller a couple weeks ago point out some discrepancy (it may/may not have been about Garrett Juice).

It's not going to do anything but use up more of my concentrate if I use 1.5 cups per the website directions, is it? Or is the Plus concoction "more" concentrated with the addition of the liquid fish?

Thanks!

Sounds great to me!

I use a very diluted homemade version of the Garrett Juice brew in my personal aerated compost tea recipe as a foliar spray. I use a more concentrated amount as a soil drench around my crops.

Happy Gardening!

I believe the difference is if you make your own concentrate from Howard's recipe (1 1/2 cup per gal. of water) or buy one where you follow their rate.

Any tea or juice you make at home will be better than anything that comes in a bottle. There's no way to keep the microbes alive in the commercial bottles.

I agree that making your own at home is the best thing to do. The commercial products are for the convenience of those who don't have or don't want to go to the trouble. One clarification though. The commercial products don't have much biological activity in the products - no disagreement there, but neither do the homemade products unless they are aerated prior to use. Garrett Juice is primarily a simulator of microbes in the soil and functions as fertilizer, a root stimulator and a flower bud producer.
