Situated in Frostburg at the far western end of Maryland, overflowing with colorful exuberance from the renovated blue Victorian style building, Harvey's Florist and Greenhouses specializes in everything botanical, from custom designed arrangements, to hand made Tiffany lamps, to beautiful fresh seasonal plants.

 Bernie Miltenberger is the head grower at Harvey's, and he has his hands full juggling the demands of three large greenhouses, seasonal consumer needs, weddings, tours and catered dinners.  He uses Growers Mineral Solutions in the greenhouses at a rate of two cups per 5 gallon mix injected in the watering system at a 100:1 ratio.  "The plants love Growers," enthused Bernie.

To fully appreciate the health and vigor of his plants, one must check out Harvey's web site at www.harveysflorist.com and click on "greenhouses."  The photos of the rows of red poinsettias are particularly striking.  Troubles with his poinsettias caused Bernie to give Growers a try.

"Several years ago," remembers Bernie, "I met one of your representatives at Penn State Ag Progress Days.  He convinced me to try Growers on the Poinsettias.  That year I used it as the main nutrient with intervals of some cal-mag between using Growers.  A good test for poinsettia health is to pull the pot and check the root system for disease.  The roots were as white and healthy as I had ever seen them.  I was amazed.  These poinsettias were healthy and gorgeous."

"I have been a greenhouse grower for 17 plus years now," Bernie concluded.  "Growers helps me cut out the use of Banrot® completely.  The micro nutrients mixed in a low salt liquid NPK solution with the very least possible heavy metal toxicity is the name of the game in growing beautiful flowers.  Thank you Growers.  I am a customer for life."
