Shaklee Basic H2 is a biodegradable and organic wetting agent that's specifically designed to work "In Harmony with Nature and Good Health." Here are some tips on how to use Basic H2 in your gardening, tree, and shrub care:
Spring and Fall: Apply 1 cup of Basic H2 to every 5000 square feet of garden using an ortho sprayer before planting and after harvest.
Planting: Mix 1/2 T. Basic H2 to a gallon of water and pour it into the furrow before dropping in the seeds.
House Plants: Mix 1 T. of Basic H2 per gallon of water when potting new plants. For added trace minerals, dissolve 12 Shaklee Alfalfa tablets in the water. Add 2 drops of Basic H2 to 2 cups of water once a month during watering, and dissolve 3 Shaklee Alfalfa tablets in the water for trace minerals.
Shrubs and Trees: Use the same mixture as House Plants.
Protecting Hands: Apply full-strength Basic H2 to your hands before planting to create an invisible glove and make clean-up easy.
Vegetable Gardens: Mix 1 TBSP. Basic H2 to a gallon of water and pour it into the furrow for faster emergence, greater root development, withstanding cold weather better, absorbing proper nutrients, and increasing growth. For above-ground vegetables, mix 2 TBSP. Basic H2 with 5 gallons of water and pour 1-2 quarts around every plant. Apply in the evening when cooler and repeat every 2-3 weeks during the growing season.
Tomato Plants: Mix 10-12 drops of Basic H2 in a 16 oz. spray bottle and spray when the sun goes down or on a cloudy day.
Rose Bushes: Use 1 tsp. Basic H2 to a gallon of water to protect against red spider and other diseases and serve as a fertilizer. Mix 8 drops of Basic H2 to a quart of water in a hand spray pump to combat aphids.
Cabbage Worms: Mix 1 tsp. Basic H2 to one pint of water and spray plants each week or ten days until worms are no longer a problem.
Green Lawns: Use 2 TBSP. Basic H2 to a bottle applicator and spray as you would a liquid fertilizer. Shampoo lawns and shrubs with a Basic H2 solution every 2-3 weeks during the growing season to remove bugs and surface tension.
Watering Fruit Trees and Rose Bushes: Use 1 oz. Basic H2 to 5 gallons of water to repel bugs and worms and promote plant growth.
Insect Spray for Lawn, Garden, and Orchards: Spray 2 TBSP. Basic H2 to 5 gallons of water.
Christmas Trees: Add a couple of squirts of Basic H2 to the water stand to keep the tree fresh and growing.
