Serenade Garden Disease Control

SERENADE Garden provides protection against a broad spectrum of the most common fungal and bacterial garden diseases, yet is completely non-toxic to bees and beneficial insects.

It is so safe you can confidently harvest and eat fruits and vegetables the very same day they are treated. Unlike sulfur-based disease control products, SERENADE Garden is non-irritating to skin and lungs. And, unlike neem oil-based products that can injure plant foliage, there is no weather or timing restrictions limiting its application.

What is the active ingredient of SERENADE Garden and Lawn Disease Control?

SERENADE Garden is made from a unique, patented strain (QST 713) of Bacillus subtilis. Farmers have used this biological pesticide for years to treat plant diseases in food crops. Bacillus subtilis penetrates and destroys the disease spores, but does not harm beneficial insects or wildlife. This ingredient is also approved by the EPA, meets USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) standards, and is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic gardening.

Which plants can SERENADE Garden and Lawn Disease Control be used on?

Vegetables, fruits and nuts, in addition to annual and perennial bedding plants and flowers, roses, potted flowers, foliage plants, trees and shrubs located in residential greenhouses.

SERENADE Garden Lawn Disease Control can also be used on houseplants. It is best to take them outdoors, spray them and then return them to the house.

When is the best time of day to spray?

SERENADE Garden can be applied anytime – there are no known phytoxicity issues. Temperature does not affect the efficacy of SERENADE Garden. It is recommended that you spray your plants after rain, as heavy rains can wash off any foliar treatments and leave your plants vulnerable to disease.

On what parts of the plant do I apply the spray?

SERENADE Garden is approved as a foliar spray. Spray leaves, stems and new shoots to provide complete coverage of the entire plant. SERENADE Garden can safely be sprayed on flowers, fruits, and vegetables. You can even harvest the treated flowers and vegetables the same day you apply.
