It certainly has been an interesting winter up here in the Pacific Northwest (Vancouver, BC, Canada). After several years of good snowfall on the mountains, this winter, we have gone from freezing -20°C (-4°F) to highs of 15°C (59°F) atmospheric rivers (it is positively spring like when the sun peeks out).  Plants, like humans, are adaptable but eventually the stress from fluctuating temperature and out of season temperatures is hard to balance out from.

Here are the top 3 cell salts to help your plants and garden recover from environmental and weather-induced stress like El Niño can do. *Note using cell salts is not a replacement for good garden and plant overwintering practices like mulching.
