Re: Superthrive

The garden center I work for sells it and we use it in the nutrient bath for our bareroot roses prior to planting them. I have read the whole label, and if you don't, you aren't missing anything....

Re: Any bug experts?

I would not recommend Advantix for a household with cats, though. I have seen cats get reactions when an owner mistakenly applied it to their cat, or the cat groomed a dog who was recently treated...

Re: Anyone else growing Meyer Lemons or Kumquats?

It is so funny you mention this. I got one from my work (a Meyer lemon) and it bloomed like crazy. I have been hand pollinating and babying it the best I can under grow lights. It gets liquid seaweed...
