GreenPlanet Nutrient’s Temporary Switch to Coloured Containers

Announcement. Surrey, BC (November 27th, 2020)

Due to a shortage of the current black containers used for GreenPlanet Nutrients powdered products, we have been forced to temporarily switch to coloured containers on selected products and container sizes to maintain supply in these times of unprecedented demand

We want to assure you that this change is temporary and in no way represents a change of any kind to our formulations.  At the first available opportunity, we will be moving back to the classic black containers that you have grown accustomed to.  

For a short time, some products will go from being in typical black containers to either green or white.

For a short time, some products will go from being in typical black containers to either green or white. Much like the garden, in business, consistency is key. In life, however, we are rarely given choices in ideal situations; and so, in light of all the challenges to consistent business this year, GreenPlanet Nutrients is committed to providing the same reliable plant food, it just may arrive in a different bottle. GreenPlanet’s Chief Operating Officer, Mark Walman, had this to say on the subject of switching to coloured bottles: 

I want to assure our customers that we have no long term plans to change our bottles to these colours.  More importantly, I want to assure customers that this change to container colour in no way represents any change to our formulations.  Ensuring that the GreenPlanet products our customers rely on remain available is the only motivation for this temporary change.

Mark Walman, COO, GreenPlanet Nutrients

This change in storage containers could affect the following products:

Same Amazing Formula, Same Amazing Results, Now Registered!

We are excited to announce that Root Builder has been officially approved for registration under the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), and Fertilizer Safety Section (FSS). With Root Builder, you can grow confidently knowing your plants are getting the highest quality ingredients possible with GreenPlanet Nutrients. 

The Bigger The Roots, the Bigger the Fruits!

What is Root Builder?

Root Builder is an additive that can be used during the vegetative and flowering stages. Use Root Builder to increase root mass, improve the conversion rate of organic and inorganic material and as a microbial soil amendment. Use Root Builder at a rate of 1.25 ml/L (5 ml/Gal) in conjunction with your nutrient solution, to enhance your plant’s root-zone, increase nutrient uptake, and prevent root disease. 

The Benefits

Using a beneficial bacteria supplement has amazing benefits in the garden; GreenPlanet’s Root Builder, for instance, is loaded with various strains of Bacillus Licheniformis and Bacillus Subtilis, two powerful, and natural sources of bacteria that enhance the root-zone and facilitate healthier, more vigorous periods of growth and bloom. David Robinson, a renowned educator and cultivation expert, further explains the importance of beneficial microbes in his book titled, The Growers Handbook: Teachings of the Garden Sage. 

There are many microorganism and beneficial bacteria products available in our industry that are very useful in expanding the root surface and increasing the nutrient uptake. These products can also increase stalk and branch thickness. In organic water gardens, microorganisms are an essential component of root disease prevention.

(Robinson, 2012, p. 72) 

So, as Robinson states, not only does Root Builder enhance the natural growth patterns of plants, but beneficial microorganisms also protect against potential issues and diseases such as root rot, pythium and general stress. 

The Importance of Certification 

The certification of fertilizer can mean a few important things to gardeners. Most importantly, plant products certified by governmental organizations like the CFIA and FSS are put through rigorous safety and input tests to maintain standards in the field of organic and mineral-based agriculture. The FFS, for example, tests and ensures that certified products do not contain harmful or poisonous amounts of trace minerals, pesticides or bacteria. So, when you use a registered supplement like Root Builder, you can be sure your garden will benefit from all the claims expressed throughout this article, without any unexpected issues. 

To access the rich and diverse compounds of Root Builder, contact a member of the GreenPlanet sales team, or your local garden supply store for product information and purchasing inquiries.

GreenPlanet Nutrients New Pricing Structure

Dear valued customer,

After considerable review of both our current position in the market as well the increased costs incurred in manufacturing, we are implementing a price increase on GreenPlanet Nutrients for the first time in our history. This new pricing structure will come into effect on December 1, 2020. 

As you are aware, GreenPlanet Nutrients has never implemented a full-scale price increase.  In fact, in the past 10 years, we have only made minor adjustments to selected products while most nutrient companies on the market have been applying annual increases or have even increased their prices multiple times in single calendar years. 

We recognize that our current pricing structure has assisted GreenPlanet Nutrients in gaining market share thus far, but we believe that this new pricing places us more appropriately in the market in comparison with our competitors.  We hope you can appreciate that this adjustment was necessary in order for us to ensure that you continue to receive the highest quality nutrients in the industry.  

It is important that you understand that raising prices was not a decision taken lightly by our company.  We recognize that growers have a wide range of choices in the nutrients they use and budgets to work within.  We sincerely hope that your experience with our range of products has shown you the value of high-quality plant nutrients and that you will continue to use GreenPlanet Nutrients in your gardens and sell GreenPlanet Nutrients in your stores. 

Thank you in advance for your continued support, and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have!

Mark Walman

Enhance your AutoPot Watering System with our clean Plant Nutrient Feed Programs

Press Release. Surrey, BC (June 4th, 2020)

A SNEAK PEEK INTO OUR LATEST AUTOPOT NUTRIENT KITS

BRINGING CLEAN NUTRIENTS TO YOUR AUTOPOT GROW

In partnership with AutoPot Watering Systems, we have created 2 new feed programs that are specifically designed for their systems. In an AutoPot System, you need incredibly clean nutrients to ensure that the lines stay clean and the AquaValves function seamlessly. Our new feed programs give the grower incredibly clean, high-quality nutrients that work perfectly in the system. There is no need to worry about unwanted biofilm or clogged lines.

”I would strongly recommend the GreenPlanet Nutrients with any of the AutoPot range because it’s very, very clean. Ben at the farm, where we hold the AutoPot Summer Social, used it last year as well and sang its praises so I thought I’d give it a try as well…really nice nutrient, recommend it.”

– Jason Ralph-Smith, Managing Director at AutoPot Global

To make it even easier for AutoPot growers to get familiar with our new feed programs, we are introducing 2 new Starter Nutrients Kits to the GreenPlanet lineup. AutoPot growers will be able to pick up all the recommended nutrients in the feed program in one box!

“GreenPlanet Nutrients was built on innovation, partnerships and a keen desire to simplify gardening and make the lives of grower’s easier.”, said GreenPlanet Nutrients COO Mark Walman.  “So designing a feed program to work in Autopots aligned perfectly with our key principles.  Autopots are incredibly innovative and are designed specifically to simplify the lives of gardeners.  Now with the GreenPlanet Nutrient Autopot Kits and feed programs, working with Autopots just got that much easier. “”

Mark Walman, COO at GreenPlanet Nutrients

NEW 2 PART AND 3 PART AUTOPOT FEED PROGRAMS

We are thrilled to be working with the AutoPot team, and with proven results from expert growers like Benjamin Biggs at Plantasia UK, we can’t wait to get these kits into the hands of AutoPot growers. We’ll have more information to share on these new feed programs and Starter Kits in future announcements. Happy growing!
