      Comments about Plant Health Care for Seedlings:

      I have been using PHC for seedlings for many years. It is exactly what seedlings need to get off to a great start. It is easy to mix and is odor free. I also use it for my houseplants with the same great results. I recommend it highly.

      Comments about Plant Health Care for Seedlings:

      I enjoy watching the plants respond so visibly and quickly.
      The plants love this stuff, so the nuisance factors of packaging and mixing are tolerable for me.
      When you mix the powder with water, there is some unpleasant odor, but it soon dissipates.
      Sometimes, I give the plants a weaker concentration when their 'diet' is too rich. How do I know? I don't really, but the plants seem to ....
      I appreciate that this dry product won't evaporate and over-concentrate the way liquid fertilizers do in this Southwest climate. I know exactly what I'm giving my little ones -- or I would if a decent measuring device were supplied.

          I agree with others who have commented on the packaging. The foil pouch inside the plastic jar is not easily resealable. A ziplock or other sealing device would make this perfect. Good product on the inside though!

          Comments about Plant Health Care for Seedlings:

          Have used PHC for 3 or 4 years and have gotten great results. But be warned: do not continue use after plant is growing well, as phosphorous (the middle #) can block the uptake of iron by the plant and cause leaf cholrosis (yellowing of leaves) and maybe eventually kill the plant.

            My seeds germinated within 3 to 4 days. I was very surprised. They are very green and off to a good start. I purchased these products myself I also used them last year from a gift certificate.

            Comments about Plant Health Care for Seedlings:

            I was looking for a simple to use fertilizer for seedlings this year and stumbled on this product, which got many rave reviews. I used it per directions on the container: "Mix 1 scoop (1 Tbsp) of PHC for Seedlings per gallon of water." I have never had a problem with growing Brassicas from seed, but when I applied this product, the Brassica leaves became crisp as if burnt. I did go to this web site to see if there was more information about the product and did find instructions that the product should be diluted by half. Why isn't this on the product container? Very misleading! I won't be using it again when I redo my starts. I don't trust it.

            I have been starting plants from seed (mostly vegetables) for years and I'm always impressed by how much healthier plants that have been given this fertilizer are, both right after I give it to them and also over the course of the season. I wouldn't be without it now!
