Aston Garberry 2 - new in June 2017.
A Solufeed product, Aston Garberry 2 is a combined garlic barrier and plant invigorator. Applied as a foliar feed, it offers protection from infestation from aphids and spider mite while enhancing growth. The garlic extract leaves no after taste on edible crops. And since the ingredients are plant derived, the good news is that use of this product will not affect your organic accreditation.
