    Has anybody used or have an opinion about superthrive?

    It seems like one of those products that might work well, but sucks at advertizing.

    Where can you buy it. I was also looking at it, but the site is horrible, lol. Any ideas where to get it?

    i've used it a bit with no complaints. My brother uses it when transplanting his bonsai's's. he swears by it. It is the worst marketed product i have ever seen though.

    You can check your magazines for an order for too.

    It is expensive but it goes a long way because you dilute it a great deal.

    Yes I have used it in gardens, landscapes and container grown plants. I could notice the difference mostly in containers and when applied to annuals, it is great for house plants. I have a Wisteria, that is shaped into a tree, the superthrive helps guarantee a good flowering. I use it when planting landscapes and treating ailing plants. I have used it on newly established lawns. I use it in Bonsai, and when I am dividing perennials. I used a gallon last year ($150.)

    i love it... works great on everything just make sure to dilute it, to bottle specs or youll burn the shyt out of your plants.. but they claim that if the plant has a little bit of green under the bark then it will bring it back... i dont doubt it...
