Fertilize Your Container Plants in Record Time With ZERO Stress On Your Back, Muscles or Joints
I am very proud to say that this super time saving, back saving fertilizer dispensing device was invented by one of our very own Backyard Growers. After bending over to fertilize a few hundred or a few thousand plants John quickly realized that there had to be a better way.
This device is amazing. All you do is fill the reservoir bottle with a granular, slow release, fertilizer and slide the handle up and down. Each short stroke delivers a fixed amount of fertilizer.
If you need to adjust the amount of fertilizer the applicator can easily be adjusted. That takes about 5 seconds!
This is Important! Regular Garden Fertilizer will Kill Your Plants!
I don’t mean that it might kill plants. I mean that it absolutely will kill your plants. You have to use a good quality slow release fertilizer like Osmocote.
All you have to do is position the applicator over the plant that you want to fertilize, pump the handle just once and the exact amount of fertilizer is dispensed.
If you are fertilizing plants in larger containers just pump the handle more than once. It literally only takes seconds to fertilize a plant allowing you to do hundreds, maybe even a thousand or more in an hour.
The little brown balls that you see in these nursery containers are the slow release fertilizer pellets that we use.
Unlike garden fertilizer, these pellets are coated and designed to release the fertilizer over a period of months as the plants need it.
Regular garden fertilizer is not coated and it will release all of the nitrogen that it contains as soon as you apply it. That will, without a doubt, kill your plants. Nursery plants just cannot use that much nitrogen all at one time.
This automated fertilizer applicator has a history of success by professional growers. Not only do many of our Backyard Growers use this device, but many large, full-scale wholesale nurseries are also using it as well.
The video below demonstrates how the applicator works and it also shows just how easy it is to setup…
From a satisfied user of this product…
We have used this fertilizer applicator for more than 3 years now-IT WORKS! And it is way easy on your back and knees-especially when you have hundreds n hundreds n hundreds of pots to fertilize within that short time when you are also trying to do a hundred and one other things! Also saves on spilling (always happens when you do it manually!) and kneeling down on wet areas trying to reach that pot in the back, and getting poked in your eyes in the process!!
Best is-any problem with the machine-John is the best guy to deal with! He doesn’t disappear or ask for extra money to provide you with any help you might need!
BTW, John or Mike did not ask me to write this!

Comments from another grower…
I have been using this fertilizer applicator for a couple of years and won’t do without it. I have a bad back among other things and this is a life saver. I don’t know about you, but my time is worth money so the amount that is wasted versus the amount of time I save comes out to benefit me.
Just a note and kinda a pat on the back to John, I recently contacted him about a problem I had with the applicator, a problem that was my fault. It actually fell and I broke the tip. I contacted John and without any hesitation, he is sending me a new tip. That’s good business and I just wanted folks to know who are thinking about getting one what type of folks you will be dealing with. You’ll have to pull mine from my “cold dead hands”…

From a Grower in Washington State…
We really like and use this fertilizer applicator. We bought it so that we would not be spending so much time on putting the Osmocote into containers, but found that we were also saving on Osmocote since we wasted less. This is a useful tool, not a gimmick.
