Frequently asked questions
What does it do?
Richard Jackson’s Plant Invigorator has a unique triple action. It safely controls a wide range of pests. In addition, it works as a foliar feed by boosting plants with nitrogen and iron. It also helps control powdery mildew disease.
How safe is it?
It’s non-toxic, environmentally friendly and bio-degradable. It’s safe for children, pets and bees.
How does it work?
My Plant Invigorator isn’t a chemical insecticide, it actually works by physical action either by overcoming the insect’s protective wax shield or by sticking them to the treated surfaces. Unlike many chemical insecticides, it will work time and time again as pests will not develop resistance to my Plant Invigorator.
What plants can it be used on?
All indoor and outdoor plants, including edible crops. Use it on everything from petunias to roses, lilies to tomatoes. If you are growing your own fruit, vegetables or herbs, another major advantage is that you can pick and eat your crops immediately after spraying if you so wish.
What pests does it control?
A wide range of major pests including whitefly, greenfly, blackfly, Red spider mite, mealybug and scale. Toby Buckland has also written in Amateur Gardening that he has used Plant Invigorator to control lily beetle.
How does it work as a foliar feed?
My Plant Invigorator, when used on a regular basis, provides a valuable boost of nitrogen and iron directly through the leaves. This helps enhance normal feeding with Flower Power through the roots of the plant. The foliar feed not only helps prevent chlorosis, it helps improve leaf colour and vigour, whilst also giving the plant a cleaner, slightly shinier appearance.
How do I apply it and how often should I spray?
It’s supplied in a ready to use spray bottle. Shake well before use and then, for maximum effect, spray the upper and lower surfaces of the leaves on a weekly basis. Experience with growers worldwide has shown that heavy infestations of most of the major pests will not occur if Plant Invigorator is applied thoroughly from the start of the growing season. But if only used occasionally as a control (i.e you only spray when pests are spotted) additional spraying may be needed. To control an attack of mealybug and scale, repeat after one or two days, and then weekly afterwards. If you have a heavy infestation of whitefly, greenfly, blackfly or red spider mite, repeat the spray after three days and again if necessary after a further three days, and then weekly afterwards.
Does it work?
Commercial growers around the world use the same formulation and they wouldn’t use it if it didn’t work superbly well! Take a look at these two pictures, they show a plant attacked by black bean aphid a) before spraying and b) the same plant just 24 hours later after spraying with Plant Invigorator!
On the QVC website, sadchilli from Blackpool says ’Richard said Plant Invigorator would work. I was a little doubtful, my roses were covered in greenfly. I gave them a blast of the spray thinking nothing would happen. How wrong, next morning not one single greenfly left. Thank you Richard for another fantastic product.’
