Portland, OR (PRWEB) May 21, 2010
The Daily Grommet is a nationally recognized blog focused on exciting new products for early adopters. Products are selected based on their innovation and utility. Companies selected have to have passionate customers who believe in the product and recommend the company. Before being selected the company is evaluated to ensure that the product works and the company treats its customers well.
To celebrate this honor John & Bob's is going to debut its updated line of smart soil solutions kits. These kits make it easier for gardeners to solve some very common gardening challenges.
The new kits are:
Clay/Hard Soil Solutions Kit
Sandy Soil Solutions Kit
Natures Gardening Kit for Lifeless Soil
Each of these kits will be offered in the 250 sq ft, 1000 sq ft, and 4000 sq ft. size. As a special promotion the 1000sq ft and the 4000sq ft kits will include free shipping on Tuesday, May 25, 2010.
All of these kits include solutions that represent a new category of microbe supplementation and nourishment to improve and build up the soil. This improves the bioavailability of the sugars and micronutrients in the soil to improve plant health, growth and production.
Application of these products is very simple. Any gardener can easily spread the John & Bob’s solutions on the top of their soil and simply water them into the soil. It’s that easy! According to John Valentino, Co-founder of John & Bob’s Corp., “By applying the John & Bob’s soil solutions as outlined in each kit any gardener can attain very healthy soil with a high level of available nutrients within one year of application. This soil would be equivalent to soil that has been heavily supplemented with compost, worm casting, and other organic fertilizers.” Because the products utilize microbes to break down the nutrients within the soil as well as aerate the soil they cannot burn or hurt plants like many traditional fertilizers or soil amendments. In fact because of the way John & Bob’s solutions work they actually help plants better absorb the nutrients from fertilizers and other amendments already in the soil.
Another unique feature of the John & Bob’s solutions is that by improving the microbial biodiversity within the soil plant diseases are greatly reduced or eliminated. Because the of the increased availability of simple sugars and nutrients to the plants overall production and flavor is increased., According to Steve Goto, a veteran nurseryman and founder of GoTomato, “ As part of my ongoing heirloom tomato testing program I have utilized the John & Bob’s products under a variety of conditions. I have consistently had greater production out of all my plants as well as a more intense series of flavors. During a recent winter test we had fifty tomato plants we were growing under adverse temperature conditions. Of those fifty plants only fifteen survived. These surviving plants were the ones we were testing the John & Bob’s GrowGreen Smart Soil Solutions on. Whenever customers ask me how to have the healthiest plants and vegetable I strongly recommend John & Bob’s soil solutions.”
By providing these simple soil solutions kits John & Bob hope to change the way we all garden and make it easier for more people to enjoy gardening. We hope you come and see our new products as they debut on the Daily Grommet on Tuesday, May 25th 2010.
