Yes, the core ingredient is a form of calcium which is beneficial to the plant and is totally safe to children, pets, and the environment.
No, Grazers works by being absorbed systemically through the leaf of the growing plant and so it is not effective when applied to the bark as it is not absorbed.
No, but we wouldn’t recommend spraying where it is going to be grazing as the treated area will be unpalatable.
It can be sprayed effectively at any stage while the plant or grass is growing, but will be particularly effective in early spring and summer when young growth is emerging and very susceptible to damage
Yes, we recommend spraying plants in the pot twice before planting and again once planted, to get Grazers built up within the plant in preparation. This is because new plants are generally very lush and succulent and they will be more prone to damage. Established plants in the garden will generally only need one initial spray at the start of the growing season with repeat applications as required.
No, Grazers must be sprayed on its own and three days should be left before and after other applications, for maximum benefit. Brassicae eg. cabbage and broccoli have a dusty leaf surface that repels liquid, in this case, it is acceptable to put literally a drop of washing up detergent in each spray to aid absorption.
Grazers is safe to spray at any growth stage and beneficial to the plant, I would recommend a weeks harvest interval after treatment as it may have a subtle effect on the taste. Most damage from rabbits and pigeons etc is caused to the young plant well before harvest, which is also when Grazers is most effective.
Yes, we have recently found Grazers is effective against mouse & vole damage and it is also beneficial to the young plants at this stage.
Yes, we have found Grazers is very effective when sprayed directly onto the young developing fruit. It is very safe to do this and beneficial to the fruit. NB if a plant/crop/grass is under stress due to poor health, nutrition, or poor soil conditions (waterlogged, drought) Grazers may not work straight away and growing conditions/plant health may have to improve before re-application.
Yes, when young tender plants are being brought outside for the first time they are very vulnerable, but often one treatment is enough initially. Where there is a severe problem we recommend a programme of treatment to get Grazers into the plant prior to being put out, eg two double rate applications inside plus another treatment immediately once outside.
It can be sprayed effectively at any stage while the crop is growing but will be best absorbed in early spring through to autumn whilst actively growing.
Grazers is rain fast in 1 hour, though a dry day is ideal to allow it to be absorbed fully. It also contains a wetting agent. In ideal conditions, it will last six weeks but obviously, with regular irrigation, treated areas will need monitoring for repeat applications.
No Grazers must be sprayed on its own and three days should be left before and after other applications, for maximum benefit.
