Reduce the Amount of Watering with Hydretain ES Plus!


Rhydretainwoot zone moisture management technology reduces the overall watering requirements.

Combines root zone moisture management technology with an advanced environmentally sound, renewable resource, non-ionic surfactant for improved soil penetration. Significantly extending periods between required waterings for turf, ornamental plants, shrubs and trees. Also approved for agricultural use.

When there is adequate liquid water in the soil, Hydretain essentially lies dormant and serves no real purpose. It is when this liquid water is depleted and only water vapor remains in the soil matrix that Hydretain’s benefits can be seen. Plants cannot use vapor, so Hydretain was engineered to capture it and collect it back into minute liquid droplets that sustain plants between waterings

Hydretain ES Plus II is only beneficial within the root zone and thereforemust be watered in thoroughly after application. Hydretain ES Plus II is biodegradable – reapply every 3 months or as needed

As always, read the instructions with product, some restrictions may apply.

VALERIE’S VIEW from the Greenhouse!



About once a day, the production staff will get a call from a prospective customer asking if we have sage in stock. When asked ‘what sage are you looking for’? There is a pause. Do they want a culinary sage or one they have seen blooming around town. Could it be a shrub, which may have the word sage in its common name but is not necessarily a sage.

The one most commonly asked for is Russian Sage, perovskia atriplicifolia, which is not a sage. We also get asked for Sand Sage, Artemisia filifolia, again not a sage. Another popular one is May Night, which is salvia nemorosa. We do stock all 3. We have a great selection of sages. In addition to May Night, we have other perennial sages such as, salvia n. ‘Blauhugel’, salvia pachyphylla ‘Mojave’, salvia greggii ‘Hot Lips’, salvia officinalis ‘Berggarten’ and many more. We also have a great selection of annual salvias like salvia coccinea ‘Hummingbird Forest Fire’ salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’. Come in and see what is available.
