Botanicare History – 15 Years and Still Growing.
Treg Bradley is passionate about Hydroponics. In 1992, what started as a hobby bloomed into a career when he opened a store in Tempe, Arizona call “Sea of Green”, which catered to Hydrogardening enthusiasts and provided everything from hydroponics equipment to organic nutrient solutions.
An Experimental Plant Nutrient
Treg’s expanding nutrient knowledge and sheer desire to provide customers with the best products on the market were driving factors in creating what would eventually become Botanicare. As part of an experimental new approach to address needs of local growers, he developed a special organic plant supplement that he called Pure Blend. He literally brewed it in the back room of his store and gave Pure Blend to several of his favorite customers, asking them to give it a try. Customers who used this effective product were encouraged to return to the store with empty bottles to get refills – and they did in droves. After rave reviews he began to package it as Pure Blend Original and sell it.
The demand for Pure Blend grew gardening retailers began to contact Treg to see if they could order Pure Blend for their stores. Within two years after hitting the shelves, Bradley developed an additional product line called Pure Blend Pro.
By 1996 Sea of Green opened two additional stores in Arizona and the success of the Pure Blend line inspired Bradley to focus his efforts solely on developing new products. He sold the Sea of Green stores and incorporated American Agritech in Tempe, Arizona and launched its primary product line: Botanicare.
