Review Summary (Based on 4 Reviews)
We have used this product for over ten years and our plant material loss rate is less than 1/4 of 1%. This is a combination of the right plant in the right place and Treesaver. We use it in our client's window boxes, patio containers and veggie gardens.
I have been offered other products by other vendors, but the 3 oz. pack makes it easy to use and to record on our daily time sheets for materials used.
Very easy to use product, no measuring involved. Results yet to be determined
I have a ranch out on the country in Southern Colorado. The soil has been depleted by decades of overgrazing (it used to be a cattle ranch). While I cannot be positive that this product has "saved" my trees, I can attest that the ten large young trees planted last March have all taken, and have adapted to my area beautifully. No one thing makes a successful tree, but through judicious watering, careful planting, and proper soil prep, my trees are beginning to flourish. I feel strongly that the microfungi play a part in that.
We have used it for years and it is worth the extra money. It saves money, it keeps your plants alive.
