The Dramm CorporationProfessional Watering Tools used by Growers Worldwide
For 80 years the Dramm family has participated in the horticultural industry as greenhouse growers, florists, and manufacturers. In 1941, John G. Dramm designed and engineered the cornerstone of Dramm Corporation; the 400 Water Breaker® Nozzle. After sharing his invention with fellow growers, & receiving many requests, he began manufacturing this unique hose nozzle in his basement. This original design has often been imitated– but never equaled by competitors. Today, the Dramm Corporation is manufacturing the Water Breaker® Nozzle along with many additional horticultural tools, and an innovative line of fish-based fertilizers. The same craftsmanship and attention to quality is incorporated into each Dramm product today as it has since 1941.
Thank you for your continued support of Dramm. We take pride in supplying you with the highest quality product on the market. When you buy Dramm, we guarantee you will receive a product that provides a lifetime of service.

Wild Valley Farms LLC
We are dedicated to helping you grow big healthy plants with: All Natural, Innovative, Soils and Fertilizers.
Our unique product Wild Valley Farms Wool Pellets are made from one ingredient, 100% raw wool. They are not only a fertilizer but they retain and hold water, provide nutrients, and increase porosity in the soil.
The wool pellets have a slow release 9-0-2 NPK value creating a natural fertilizer that provides optimal nutrients that help plants flourish through the entire season.
The wool fibers absorb and hold 20% their weight in water making it the perfect solution for watering both in the garden and your indoor plants. Adding them to your soil reduces the number of times you need to water but also protects your plants from over watering by wicking the extra water away.
Wool pellets expand when added to the soil, helping to increase air porosity for optimal root growth and reducing the need for artificial additives.
Wild Valley Farms Wool Pellets are ALL-NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE, and RENEWABLE.
