    Revive? I didn't know they still sold that stuff. Tru green bought out Evergreen in 88 and brought that stuff to houston to market. They sold it as a surfactant to retain moisture. I don't think anyone ever saw a difference. I used to sell the plant food in my garage sales for a buck...lol. Probably still have some left.

    It varies from state to state. Check with your state dept. of agriculture. I think you can find out that info on their website.
