    Q
    can i use root boost on grapes and blackberrys and if not why not
    A
    We actually do not manufacture nor test these products. In this case the manufacturer has not tested this product on edible crops so these plants are not included on the product label. The EPA requires very rigorous and costly testing before a product can be used on edible plants so many manufacturers exclude these plants from the product label. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Q
    Will Garden Tech Root Boost start roots on rose bushes or tree clippings?
    A

    Garden Tech Root Boost Root Hormone Powder can be used for roses but it’s not labeled for tree clippings. For root boost for tree clippings, you can use Bonide Bontone II Rooting Powder, or if these clippings already have roots, then you can use Bonide Root & Grow Root Stimulator 4-10-3.
