Did You Know......

Did You Know......

According to Paul James of HGTV's Gardening by the Yard, the majority of synthetic pre and post emerging herbicides for controlling weeds in lawns contain the chemicals 24D, 245T and arsenic.




Certain brands of potting soil and plant food contain arsenic, some in levels that if they were in your yard would make it a remediation target by the agencies.

Examples: Source: Washington State Dept. of Agriculture: http://agr.wa.gov/PestFert/Fertilizers/ProductDatabase.htm


  • Schultz Professional Potting Soil Plus/ African Violets & Blooming Plants 0.08-0.14-0.09                          
    128 PPM of arsenic

  • Scotts All-Purpose Plant Food 18-13-13                                                                                                  
    50.9 PPM

  • Schultz Professional Potting Soil Plus 0.08-0.12-0.08                                                                                
    34.55 PPM

  • Schultz Multicote Time Release Outdoor Plant Food 17-17-17                                                                  
    28.2 PPM

  • Schultz Enriched Garden Soil for Flowers & Vegetables 0.5-.10-.05                                                          
    25.57 PPM



And yet the agencies allow these products to be on the open market and on store shelves.

It seems like it would be a good idea to bring this information up with the Agencies and to ask for a written response.

This is about as silly as it gets. Here are lives are being turned upside down by agency aeople who can't answer our simple questions with anything but statements that defy logic, and they are products for sale on store shelves that have higher arsenic concentrations that we have in our yards. If it wasn't so upsetting, it would be funny. Leave us alone! Go bother some selling potting soil!
