The mat comes in three sizes or as a roll for custom sizes. www.smartgrow.us

- Employ, a reformulation of the previously-available product Messenger, acts as a plant immunity booster stimulating the plant's natural defenses. The active ingredient is a protein extracted from harmful plant bacteria. When the protein is sprayed on plants, the plant reacts as if it is under attack from disease and mounts a defense. This translates into better growth and stress-resistance. Endorsed by the American Rose Society, spraying the non-toxic Employ may become another chore, like spreading mulch, that helps plants grow better. www.gardenthings.com
