No matter the product or program, Holganix focuses on soil biology as the solution to plant health. At Holganix we believe that the best way to have full, colorful, disease-free plants, is to first take care of their health.  At Holganix we have a variety of products, but what ties them all together is that they ALWAYS start with biology in mind.

Holganix products are used to treat trees, shrubs and flowers using two methods: (1) Plant Start Applications and (2) Soil Smart Program.


Plant Start Applications - Using Holganix Bio 800+ products at Planting

Often, the problem with traditional plant installations is that you take a perfectly satisfied plant and install him in an environment with poor soil quality. As a result, the plant becomes stressed and transplant shock often occurs. However, when you install a plant and water it in with Holganix Bio 800+ Tree and Shrub or Holganix Bio 800+ Bloom during the installation, you ensure your plant not only survives in its new habitat, but it thrives. It’s like insurance for your installation!

Holganix Bio 800+  products are used in plant start applications to:

  • Reduce transplant shock
  • Grow strong plant roots
  • Boost color

The Plant Start installation is easy, and there are a variety of ways to apply your product to your plants. Watch our video below for a demonstration or click here to watch the video if reading this blog via email.

 

Soil Smart Program - Using Holganix Products During Maintenance Program

The traditional method for a program incorporates fertilizer and pest control aspects that are synthetic-based. We do get results from these but it seems that we end up using more and more chemicals to get the job done, and in the end, do not necessarily help stabilize the plant’s health.

Holganix Soil Smart Program consists of all the products needed for a fertilization program including fertilizer, pesticides and of course, your Holganix plant probiotics. However, unlike a traditional fertilizer program, the Holganix Soil Smart Program requires fewer fertilizers and pesticides to create lush, healthy plants. Furthermore, the Soil Smart Program focuses on building strong, resilient plants that is better able to deal with stress.
