Product Overview

Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) works systemically to interrupt the hormones that cause growth. Trim your plant then apply Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) as a foliar spray one time and it could last the entire season cutting your labor by as much as half. The benefits of Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) do not stop with less work but extend to the plant's appearance. The lack of shoot elongation encourages lateral branching resulting in a fuller appearance and denser plant. Even shrubs and hedges that have been affected by weather or pests can benefit from Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) because they begin to fill in even on old wood.

Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator (PGR)  will also help to reduce or eliminate unwanted fruit on ornamentals and trees.

    "Labor saving" device

    For years I have used Atrimmec on privet hedges in April/May. They remain well groomed until July. This product saves me dozens of hours of work.

    Stop the endless hedging

    By Rick on 05/19/2016

    I do professional landscape maintenance and hedge trimming sucks up huge amounts of time in the spring. Frustrating to trim a privet topiary and two weeks later it needs it again. This stuff really helps save me a lot of time. I've used it for many years. Doesn't work as well on Photinia so I do two applications.

    This is a miracle! It has cut down my yard work tremendously. I applied it 3 times in last years growing season and had no problems. Will be applying it again soon for this year. I am just a homeowner, not a professional. Love the product.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
It's June 13 so can I still use this product on my barberry bushes?
A
There is no specific time to use this product on barberry bushes. If you are speaking temperature wise, if it is very hot, Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator should be used in the early morning or late evenings. If treated plants are subject to rainfall or overhead irrigation within 6 hours after spraying, effectiveness may be reduced.

Q
Which surfactant should I choose when using Atrimnmec Plant Growth Regulator?

This is a quote from the label tips for bark banding: "when bark banding or soil drenching a 100% organosilicone surfactant is necessary." Can you tell me which surfactant I should purchase that fits this specification?

A

When using Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator you would want to use a surfactant like Prime Source Duo Stick. This is going to be a proprietary blend of methylated seed oil and organosilicone surfactants.

Q
Can you apply Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator without trimming in early spring?

I trim my properties neatly in the fall and winter. I would like to know if you can apply early spring without trimming and before bushes start to grow vigorously. Or if it is necessary to first cut or trim and then apply within 36 hours. Early- mid summer is very busy time of year and I would like to avoid trimming then. Last year I applied after trimming in July and it lasted until fall/winter with light growth.

A

According to the product label for Atrimmec PGR:

For a more formal appearance: Trim the shrub or groundcover to shape, leaving at least two pairs of extended leaves on each shoot to absorb the spray. Apply this product within three days.

For a more natural appearance: Either trim only the long, wild shoots and immediately apply this product spray, or trim shrub or groundcover to shape, allow the new shoots to grow at least two inches, and then apply this product spray.

Trimming after the application of Attrimec may interfere with the action of the product.

Q
How much Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator would I need to treat two trees?

I have a 15 yr. old cherry tree, and a 10 yr. old Sweet Bay Magnolia. Also, does this work on boxberry and crimson barberry? Are the directions on the label?

A

You will use 1-3 ounces of Atrimmec Plant Growth Regulator per gallon of water for most foliar sprays for growth control. Small trees up to 16 feet require 1-5 gallons per tree, and larger trees 20-30 feet require 10-15 gallons of solution per tree. Thorough coverage provides best results. Both cherry laurel and barberry are listed with rates on the product label. We are not sure this product would be effective on the magnolia or boxberry since those species have not been tested or shown to be affected per the product label. Be sure to read the entire label before using this product.
