      Introduced in 1997, the Jack's Classic water-soluble plant foods are the finest products we have ever made for the home grower.

       

      Fall, 2002 marked the introduction of the all-new Jack's Professional fertilizer, an enhanced fertilizer formula that is even better than Bob Peter's signature "True Blue" formula—Peter's Professional— the first blue water-soluble fertilizer.

      At JR PETERS, INC, we pride ourselves on designing, formulating and manufacturing the best water-soluble fertilizers in the industry. Our state-of-the-art laboratory services support the horticulture, specialty agriculture and retail markets with unprecedented reliability and accuracy.

       

      Our company was founded in 1997. However, our leadership position and legacy of innovation in the horticulture industry date back more than 63 years, when our family patriarch, Bob Peters, established the Horticultural Services Company.

       

      Bob tested soil for greenhouse growers and made recommendations on how to produce the best crops. Later, Bob introduced the original Peters Professional Plant Food–one of the first blue water-soluble fertilizers. Today, as president of JR PETERS, INC, Jack Peters advances our family's tradition of delivering only the finest quality products and services with Jack’s Classic and Jack’s Professional.
