Harlequin's Gardens has been an organic nursery for 20 years. We have been researching alternatives to non-toxic pesticides for 35 years and we have been testing these products in our gardens and on the plants we produce for sale. This year we heard about the Pharm Solutions line and tried several products. We were very pleased with the results, especially since the ingredients are botanicals, smelled good and worked remarkably well. The Veggie Pharm was very effective against aphids, but what really amazed me was the way it worked on blister beetles. Blister beetles can defoliate a clematis in a week and cause really bad damage to Anemones.
With one spraying, the beetles were actually dropping and with one more spraying they were no longer a problem. Beetle pests are usually very difficult with non-toxic controls, so I was impressed. The Garlic Pharm was very effective for spraying wasps that were living in my tractor. It did take repeated sprayings to get rid of them, but I did not have to worry about poisons or explosions, and the wasps did not want to return.
The Oil Pharm was a good alternative to petroleum horticultural oils, which although they are effective and non-toxic, they are petroleum which we do not like to recommend for spraying pests on vegetables.
We are happy to be able to recommend and sell the Pharm Solutions products to our loyal customers who depend on us for our organic plants and sustainable guidance. It's great that they are USDA Certified Organic.
