Lose the mites, aphids and more- let your roses and trees live their healthiest lives by saying sayonara to those tiny holes and other problems that can go from a small issue to a large one. There’s an easy solution to help your roses, fruit trees and other deciduous trees: having Gerbert and Sons spray with dormant oil in late winter before the buds begin to swell. This spray of specially formulated oil works by suffocating or poisoning the eggs nesting in the branches before they have a chance to hatch and wreak havoc. Since no harmful chemicals are involved, it is not damaging to other, more beneficial insects, or the environment.
Another simple way to go greener is to add a compost bin to your household! It’s an easy, environmentally friendly way to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills by collecting and breaking down organic materials. It’s a great trade-off- you get rid of your grass clippings, leaves, and kitchen scraps and get natural and mild fertilizer in return. When you mix it with the soil in your garden or other plantings, it returns valuable nutrients and improves soil structure. This encourages strong and healthy root systems, which help to conserve water by reducing runoff. Composting really is easy, but since we know the hardest part of any project is just getting started, we’re more than happy to help get you off the ground!
But wait, there’s more! At Gerbert & Sons brew our own organic liquid fertilizer, also known as compost tea, by steeping compost with beneficial organisms in aerated water. The result is a nutritionally rich, concentrated organic liquid fertilizer that enhances your soil’s biology, improving the health of your plants.
That’s a lot of ways for us to help make your roses and trees much happier- oil, compost, compost tea- and all of it can be amazingly easy with Gerbert and Sons’ help!
