Plant Care


Always read and follow label directions.


Q. Something is eating the flowers and buds off the tops of my plant. What can I do?

A. You may have deer or rabbits feeding on your garden. Apply Shot Gun Repels-All, Shot Gun Deer & Rabbit Repellent or Shot Gun Hot Pepper Wax.


Q. After I prune my trees do I need to put something on the fresh cut?

A. You should seal the wound of any tree either after pruning or injury. Apply Bonide Pruning Sealer immediately after pruning to protect the tree from invading insects and diseases.


Q. I have several old stumps in my yard is there a product I can use to aid in stump removal?

A. You can use Bonide Stump-Out®. The active ingredient in this product is Sodium Metabisulfite. This product will only work on seasoned wood, stumps that have been dead and cut down for over a year. Make sure you follow the label directions and you will be able to remove the stumps easily.


Q. What can I use when transplanting or starting new plants from cuttings, to help them to form a good root system?

A. Feeding your new plant properly is very important. You should use Bonide Bontone Rooting Powder, Bonide Plant Starter Solution or Root & Grow® when planting new plants or transplanting existing plants. The rooting hormone in these products is safe for the root system and will help the plant get a head start in its new environment. Cuttings should be dipped in the product which will stay on the stem and remain there once planted.

Q. The leaves on my azaleas are turning yellow. What should I do to keep them healthy?

A. The leaves are yellowing due to a deficiency of iron. The problem is also known as chlorosis. To correct this, apply Bonide Iron Sulfate or Liquid Iron. Azaleas need a soil with a low pH and these products will help lower the pH and allow the plant to take up the iron and other nutrients it needs.

Q. There are sunken brown spots on the bottoms of my tomatoes. What causes this?

A. Most likely it is blossom-end rot, which is caused by the lack of available calcium in the soil. Usually it occurs in the summer when it’s hot and dry and the tomatoes get too dry between watering. Use Bonide Rot-Stop® Tomato Blossom End Rot to add calcium to the soil and water more frequently in early morning.

Q. I want to ensure that my tomato plants will produce a lot of healthy tomatoes. What can I do to get good tomatoes?

A. To help ensure a good crop of tomatoes, use Bonide Tomato-Blossom Set Spray. Spray the blooms and surrounding foliage to increase blossom set, which will increase yield and production. Use a side dressing of Garden Naturals Tomato & Vegetable Food.

Q. How can I make my Hydrangeas turn blue?

A. Use Bonide Aluminum Sulfate or Soil Acidifier.
