WHY BLACK WONDER 5000 IS GREAT FOR HYDROSEEDERS

1. Black Wonder 5000 is rich in nutrients. Most Hydroseeding is done in dead sub soil and needs Black Wonder to bring it to life. 

2. Black Wonder 5000 protects tender seed.  Your expensive seed is wrapped with super enriched compost to protect it and keep it from drying out until it sprouts and grows. 

3. Black Wonder 5000 coats your seed with Humic Acid, a proven ingredient to speed germination. Fast grass. Less chance for washouts or erosion fines.  Black Wonder 5000 puts money in the Hydroseeder’s and customer’s pockets.  

4. Black Wonder 5000 soil enzymes go to work fast to make plant food for the new seedlings. 

5. Black Wonder 5000’s Humic acids help make plant food. 

6. Black Wonder 5000 polymers grab and hold precious water and the food being produced by the enzymes, Humic and folic acids. Grabbing that ultra- important water just gives the seed more water longer to assure good germination. The polymers will carry the seedlings thru a drought time. 

7. Black Wonder 5000’s root fungi attach to the seedlings roots and more than double their ability to pull up needed food and water.  Jump starts seedlings. 

8.  Black Wonder 5000’s inoculating good bacteria help make free nitrogen.  These good bacteria attach to the roots of your legume seedlings. The legumes grow nodules to make FREE nitrogen out of the air;  feed themselves and the grasses by putting nitrogen into the dead soil.

9. Black Wonder 5000’s Gypsum provides much needed calcium and improves poor soil structure 

10. Black Wonder 5000’s vermiculite holds nutrients and aerates heavy dead soils. 

11. Black Wonder 5000 is BLACK.  The BLACK draws heat. Hydroseeding done in cool or cold weather will come up faster as black draws heat. Black is beautiful. Black is the trademark of all rich soils.
