Heat stress can lead to brown grass and a dry lawn. And, much like people, a stressed lawn and garden is in need of a deep “breath” of oxygen. Proper hydration, or water management, is also key to a lawn and landscape that handles summer heat well.

Celebrate by growing healthy strawberries using Carbotein
What better way to celebrate strawberries than growing the best possible fruits?
If you’re growing strawberries, you will want to know that Carbotein (www.Carbotein.com) is among the favorite foods for strawberries. Carbotein is a collection of organic vegetable extracts that lead to powerful positive effects on plant growth.
Of course it’s a matter of taste, but many people think wild and organic strawberries are the sweetest. Carbotein is a preferred plant food among organic, veganic, and hydroponic growers for increasing growth yields of turf, crops, flowers, and fruits, including, of course, strawberries. Farmers and gardeners find that growing strawberries with Carbotein can yield even sweeter, faster, and larger crops, with boosts from nature. (Interested in organic gardening?

Carbotein is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Plants treated with Carbotein include turf grass, ornamental shrubs, trees, and agricultural crops, such as flowers, spinach, mushrooms, carrots, radishes, beans, wheat, corn, tomatoes, cotton, rice, barley, fruit trees and others.
Carbotein is applied to soil and can be easily combined with other soil nutrient programs.
