Beautiful and productive gardens start with great soil

As gardeners we love plants, but it's not uncommon for us to jump straight into the fun tasks such as plant and colour selection before we check the type and health of our soil. Our soil improvers come in three main categories summarised below: Soil improvers, Seaweed solutions and fertilisers.

1. SOIL IMPROVERS

Improve water-holding capacity, increase microbial activity and increase drought resistance.

♦ Biochar Sweeten acid soils, reduce fertiliser use, improve water conservation and improve compost!

♦ Mycogold Improve microbial action in a plant's root system - a must when planting trees.

♦ Rockdust Conserve up to 30% more water, making plants healthier and more drought-tolerant.

2. SEAWEED SOLUTIONS

Revitalise plants year-round and improve resistance to pests.

♦ Granular Seaweed Sustainably sourced bull-kelp, apply straight to garden or make into a solution.

♦ Ocean Brew Improve plant and soil vigour year-round. 

3. NATURAL FERTILISERS

Specially developed for growing healthy fruit and veggies.

♦ Organic Vegie and Herb Fertiliser Keep your harvest organic with this BPA- registered fertiliser. 

♦ Fruit and Citrus Fertiliser A special blend developed specifically for growing healthy fruit and citrus.
