Has anyone ever tried this stuff? I bought some a week ago from a local nursery and had never heard of it before. It contains seasame oil and humid.acid...I feel like I notice a difference already, especially in younger plants but I did fertilized the same time so it's hard to tell. When I searched, there was an old post or two but not much feedback.

the reality is nothing much works very well that is available to the homeowner

RE: Sunniland nematode treatment

I've been using it on my herb/veggie garden for about 3 years, and I've had a significant reduction in nematode damage to plants such as carrots. So seems to help, but is not a cure.

RE: Sunniland nematode treatment

As with everybody, my main problem is tomatoes, but everything as well. Not expecting it to be a cure-all but hoping it can add to the arsenal to nurse everything along and maybe add to the soil in general since it encourages microbes.

Hi Derbika

The sunniland product for nematodes was recommend by Lukas nursery to be used on ornamentals like the butterfly bush, they told me that before planting they treat the area.
For the tomatoes, the best bet is fresh soil. The community garden was having problems with the nematodes till the last season that I recommended them that they should try them in pots inside the raised bed with always new soil, they liked the results.
