"Total" mango tree nutrient care. Growscripts
« on: April 16, 2015, 12:57:36 PM »
Saw this product at my local HD. Mango tree care kit by GrowScripts. $20

http://www.growscripts.com/mango-tree-care-kit.html

Not too fond of the systemic bacterial/viral/fungicide stuff, but the fert is a slow release type though the N content is very high.

Going through their site, you'll also find:
Chelated

Acidified
http://shop.growscripts.com/Essential-Plant-Micronutrient_p_21.html

In addition to mango formulations, they had Citrus, Avocado, and I believe blooming/flowering trees.

The Earth laughs in flowers. And bear gifts through fruits.
No where to plant it...but atleast I got it. ;)
F*ck squirrels
and deers

You are pretty close by me, which HD? Have not seen that at my HD on Sheridan and 95.  University or the one on Pines behind Chipotle.

University Dr and Stirling Rd. In the garden center just before the Citrus and Palms in the back.

Saw those at my HD last night, located in the garden center right near the register.

Also had a citrus one and a avocado one.

How much does this go for? It is not on the HD website. It is locally created in Florida. Three bags of wood chip mulch are what? 6 dollars? This plus some decent slow release fertilizer with micro-elements might go further on one fruit tree. Home Depot has some of these though  the 8-3-9 found in PB, Broward, Miami|Dade counties is superior. But HD and Lowes have a 6-4-6 slow release w minors that is called citrus|avocado|mango fertilizer.

Then do a Patricks type foliar program or at least Southern Ag Citrus foliar (found at HD)

The systemic bactericide/fungicide is some type of thyme extract according to the label. Seems reasonable safe. I have to look into it more though.

This may be what they're using as the bactericide: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thymol

Very happy to see this kind of kitting products together in order to take the pain out of having to figure it all out. As you can see by all of the areas addressed, it would not be a simple task to develop the level of understanding in order to put it all together. Took me several years and lots of money to arrive at very similar approach as this kit.
