Just wish to comment on your products – I along with my 10 year old grandson have an allotment where we grow a wide range to vegetables and this last year’s harvest was the best for a while. This was mainly through using the shield products, where the plants were kept free of aphids and fungal infections. It’s brilliant that there isn’t any need to use chemicals or pesticides just nature’s essential oils. Thanking you again,
My name is Rob Hall and I have grown and shown vegetables for over 40 years at both club and national levels. For many years I have struggled against pests and disease, wanting not only to grow exceptional veg but also to be able to eat it safely. At last I can say I have found an answer! Shield have a range of affordable products that really control pests and disease, with the added bonus of being safe to use without the need for protective clothing and masks. Further and best of all we get to eat all those lovely vegetables as well!

My name’s Paul Rochester I am the current world record holder for the heaviest leek. I have tried shield product, which I received off Harry Johnson with great success! Back off worked well on rust on leeks without having to use nasty chemicals and plant wash worked well on aphids on my Brussel sprouts.
As one of the UK’s biggest commercial chilli seedling growers I try to keep things as natural as possible for my customers. But an outbreak of Pythium within my propagation beds normally only ends in the use of chemicals to get it under control.
When Harry suggested I try the natural Bac-Off formula I was very sceptical at first being as this is a commercial setup. I really did not have time to trial an unknown product . The first application of Bac-Off as a root drench cured the problem and I followed it up with a maintained dose for several months to stop re-contamination. The run off from my propagation beds also feeds my tomato crops which have always been plagued by blight and mildew. Even the most powerful chemicals have proven very ineffective in controlling it.
But to my surprise with the run off containing Bac-Off I was not experiencing any mildew or blight at all! Until i switched back over to just water and then the mildew returned within days. As soon as I noticed I re-dosed the Bac-Off and my crop continued until late November without any signs of blight or mildew.
