Gorgeous Gardens Inside Out

This feature reveals details about an earth-friendly gardening product home owners can use to grow healthy, robust gardens.

Gorgeous gardens are simple to cultivate when you nurture plants from the inside out.

So say scientists at Eden Bioscience who manufacture a plant health regulator called Messenger®.

According to these gardening experts, the difference between a good gardener and those with a bright green thumb, is the knowledge of how-to help plants reach optimal health.

To have the healthiest plants in the neighborhood, Jeff McClellan, a horticultural specialist with Messenger® advises that gardeners first make sure that plants, trees, shrubs and anything else gardeners grow receive the basic nutrients needed to grow.

“That puts the necessary building blocks in place for success, but it doesn’t guarantee it,” says McClellan. “The secret that separates an average garden and an outstanding garden lies within the plant itself.”

Eden Bioscience’s plant health regulator, Messenger®, promises to unlock a plant’s natural ability to super-perform in the garden.

The active ingredient in Messenger® is a naturally occurring protein called harpin. When applied to a plants leaves, the harpin protein boosts the plants ability to defend itself against diseases and helps it to better absorb nutrients.

Ultimately, Messenger-treated plants produce bigger flowers, more fruits and vegetables and grow greener, lusher foliage.

“Enhancing a plant’s natural defenses is one of the best ways to make sure that plants reach their full potential,” said McClellan, “and Messenger® unlocks that ability.” It’s an inside-out effect that boosts a plants resistance to stress and disease that puts the plant in control of its own health.

Now, three years after the product was first introduced, gardeners across the country are talking about the affect Messenger® has had on their gardens.

Crazy for Camellias in Carolina

Ann Cully of South Carolina raves about the way Messenger® transformed her garden last summer.

“Messenger® had an amazing impact on my camellias,” says Cully. “All of my plants were so healthy and robust last season, and I attribute that to Messenger®. “

Cully says that she was most amazed when her Messenger-treated camellias bloomed for six weeks longer than usual.

“Cully’s experience is not unusual,” says McClellan. “Because the Messenger-treated plants are better able to absorb nutrients, they tend to bloom earlier and longer than non-treated plants.

Cully says that after seeing results in her own garden she recommended Messenger® to her daughter.

“My daughter’s Japanese maple had not performed for years, and she was ready to remove it from her garden,” says Cully. “I persuaded her to at least give Messenger® a try. After just a few applications, the tree was completely restored.”

Poised for Plant Perfection in New York

While some gardeners are using Messenger® to solve a particular problem, others are simply trying to achieve pure “plant perfection.”

African violet breeder, Catherine Brienza, of New York, used Messenger® on her violets and saw tremendous results.

“As a breeder I’ve tried many different products, but Messenger® is the only thing that made my violets take off,” said Brienza.

Brienza says that after three years, her orchid just stopped blooming.    “I treated it with Messenger®, and saw tremendous results: new roots, new shoots and it grew to twice the size it was two weeks before the Messenger® application.”

Like Brienza, other experienced gardeners uses Messenger® to grow prize winning dahlias, roses tomatoes and gardenias like the one shown left.

Purist Gardener from Pittsburgh

Messenger® is not a fertilizer, plant hormone, or a fungicide, which is something that makes gardeners like Betty Labutis of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, comfortable gardening with it.

“I am a purist when it comes to gardening, and I won’t use pesticides or fungicides on my flowers or vegetables,” says Labutis.

After years of trying to grow disease-free roses organically, Labutis was about to give up.

“Lat summer I had considered removing my climbing roses, and then I heard about Messenger®. I was skeptical at first, but two weeks after the first application I saw a dramatic improvement. My roses were gorgeous, no black spot or powdery mildew and they were blooming like crazy.”

Plants, like people, require proper nutrients and look and feel their best when their immune system is up and stress levels are down.
