Plants, like pets, deserve the best of care. Does PlanTea really work? You bet. But just so you don't think I'm making all this up, I'll let customers speak their mind. For example:

Hi Marion,

Just wanted to let you know that I am totally amazed at the difference in my hydrangea plant with just one watering with PlanTea. I can't believe the change. The plant was nearly gone, only some leaf buds forming, but they wouldn't open, just dry up. Now one of the leaf buds is opening and this has to be the result of using PlanTea. A wonderful tonic for my plants. Thank you,

--Diane Carlson, Dawson Bay, Manitoba, Canada

Good ole customer service

Hello there! I received the PlanTea quite promptly; thank you! I brewed up my first batch and I'm trying it out; I must say I am very pleased with the product. No bad smells, and I swear my plants seemed to perk up with the first application! I also like the packaging; it projects the kind of image I am looking for.
-- Carol A. Fuhr, CAF Consulting, Florissant, MO

--D.L., Washington, D.C.

Great idea! Sometimes organic gardeners are hesitant to use kelp, fish meal and so on because if you spill it, it smells up the place. PlanTea doesn't do that.
--L.B., Lessburg, VA

Great idea! I like to use organics and I haven't found anything like this.
