“Now that I have used GreenCure for an entire season, I have to tell you I like this product just as much as I thought that I would. I found that using it at the preventative rate allowed me to go an entire season without any Powdery Mildew and Black Spot problems! I also used GreenCure on my mother’s roses that I help her tend to. I did not get over to her place as early in the season as I hoped to for the first spraying. Powdery Mildew had set in on several of her roses. While that was unfortunate, it gave me a great opportunity to really put GreenCure to the test. Using GreenCure at the cure rate took care of the situation in short order. The first spraying had a very visible impact upon the PM and I followed that first spraying at the Cure Rate up with another for good control measure. From then on I used the preventative rate and kept things under control.
In my years to tending to the roses I had some problems with using other fungicides when I needed them during the hotter times of the season. I found that I could go ahead and use GreenCure during those hotter months without any noticeable impact on the roses foliage. The other products I have used in years past have caused some noticeable problems with the foliage and appeared to cause more leaf drop. The applications are always made during the cool hours of the morning and never during the heat of the day.
I liked GreenCure from what I read before I started using it and still like it after my first season of exclusive use. It is a great earth friendly product that does what it needs to do for us Rosarians and Gardeners.
Along with having a passion for rose growing and roses, I also love to garden with other plants. Every year since we moved into our home here in town we have had a veggie garden and also a pumpkin hill. Until I found GreenCure we always had problems with powdery mildew setting in on the big leaves of our pumpkin and cucumber vines. The PM would cause the plants to lose vigor and die prematurely leaving us with a very small crop. I remember having one pumpkin three years in a row of trying and at the most three in other years. The leaves and vines would start out fine and then seemingly overnight be attacked by the PM. I did not want to spray any of the typical chemicals on our food type crops but did try some products on the pumpkins due to frustration one year. The improvement from one to three pumpkins just did not seem like enough, plus the products really did not totally work. Well this year I decided to try GreenCure on our pumpkin vines leaves and the cucumbers as well. I can happily report to you that GreenCure wiped out the onset of the PM, kept it away, and we had a whopping twelve pumpkins from our two vines on our limited space pumpkin hill. We had pumpkins for all the kids and grandkids for Halloween and even other uses!
We also had the best crop of cucumbers we have ever had here and kept getting cucumbers right up to first killing frost.
So no matter if you are a Rosarian (serious Rose Lover) or all around Gardener, I can honestly say that GreenCure works and works well.”
