There are two types of defence mechanisms plants use when under attack, whether that’s from pests, disease or the effects of a harsh environment. When a plant gets wounded it can take a few minutes to several hours for these pre-existing barriers and protection mechanisms to work.
Plants have their own abilities to heal. They use biochemicals to signal and communicate, via the roots, with the soil and surroundings and attracts beneficial bacteria for their antibiotic and probiotic restorative effects. Support your garden with products that promote health, respond to attack and heal better. The ingredients in Healthy Garden provide a boost to internal defences for better survival.
Pests love your plants. They think your plants are delicious. Aphids, spider mites, moths, bugs and their eggs cause damage to the plants in your garden from eating plant leaves, laying their eggs, causing an infection which leaves plants dying.
Pests can be very irritating when you find them and hard to find if they blend in with the plant leaves. Pests that eat and burrow into plants easily become a bigger problem when they lay eggs and reproduce.
Using Healthy Garden helps plants grow thicker cell walls and build resistance to the effects of an attack.
Plants can often be susceptible to disease and it’s natural to start worrying. The signs of damage in your garden can be easy to spot, for example, discolouration patches or yellow on the leaves, raised spots, mildew, blackened stems and brown rot.
Some solutions, like moving the plant or watering more are easy to try but they don’t always work. You might be hesitant to reach for harsher treatments without first understanding more about them and the potential impact from using them. Roses amongst other plants can be susceptible to mildew. Mildew is caused by a fungus and attacks new growth, producing spores that spread the disease.
Healthy Garden increases a plants resistance to stress to create strong, healthy plants enabling roses to defend better against attack from diseases like mildew.
There are lots of factors in our environment that can cause stress to plants. We see this visually in its condition or the damage to its leaves and flowers.
Too much water can make the plants soggy, yellow and rot the roots. Too little water can lead to drought. Sunlight or the lack of it can also make plants wither and dry out, and if a plant has the wrong balance of nutrients it can affect the growth or cause chlorosis. Even the most confident gardeners amongst us get caught out by a surprise spring frost damaging tender plants.These tomato plants are all suffering from drought.
Before the drought the tomato plants on the right were treated with Healthy Garden, the plant doesn’t panic when water is not abundant, but it digs into its reserves and continues to grow.
This year, Spring starts on 20th March. The days will be getting longer and hopefully more sunny days...
