Evidently they really do have 'Solutions for a Growing World', with the type of endorsement that says: "I want my landscapes to be as good as theirs"...

Does teamgreendude work for these guys or something...


Sorry I forgot PHC Turf & Ornamental products are now owned by Lebanon.

So it is an organically focussed system of product applications... it must work well enough to get noticed,,, wouldn't you say?

We do not know if that is what they are using.

I said earlier they did use it or something like the PHC for Trees years ago.

I had a great deal of sucess with the PHC Flexx product but it is hard to find, they now push the PHC Bio Pak Plus around here. I am again not sure it is giving me the same responce I once got.

The Flexx used to have a little more trace in it too.

Not saying it is a bad product but likely toned down some so they can make more money on it.

We still do not know what Davey is using.

yea I'll watch out for anything odd if there is a problem. My Jdl rep told me slow release will help without burning the delicate roots of the trees and shrubs.

Much of the N is in the form of micronized UF. This is very slow release, intending to provide N over the entire growing season. Warning, this stuff is hard to mix and apply. It is a powder that does not like to stay in suspension. I once thought about getting some straight micronized UF, but thought better of it when I learned about how hard it is to handle. You need a spray rig with vigorous mechanical agitation. Think the old John Bean spray rigs with the duplex piston pumps and the mechanical agitation shaft running off of the engine with a pulley.
