SPRING IS HERE!
It’s that time of year again so don’t leave your hungry plants waiting, now is the perfect time to fertilise and help encourage that beautiful Spring growth and the flowers to follow!
There are a number of ways to feed your garden and Spring is the most important time to be doing so. We’ll list a number of ways you can help improve your soil and give your garden and its plants all the nutrients they could need.
Slow Release Fertiliser
With the warmer weather well on its way, now is a great time to be using a slow release fertiliser on the garden such as our Troforte Controlled Release range. It is by far the easiest method and not only will it give your plants all the nutrients they could ask for over a long period, it also acts as a soil conditioner with its mineral enriched and microbe coated prills to help with microbial activity and nutrient uptake. Troforte comes in a number of compositions that will suit any garden, whether it be natives , fruit & citrus, acid lovers or just the all purpose, we’re confident you will see the results this fertiliser boasts!
Suitable for most gardens, organic fertilisers such as our Certified Organic Dinofert range are a great way to improve your garden and feed your plants. While still acting as a slow release, this organic fertiliser consists of composted poultry manure that is pelletised for convenient application and will add essential organic matter to replenish soil structure.
Dinofert also comes as Turf Pro, designed for your lawn, it also comes in our Premium Organic Complete with added blood & bone, seaweed extract, zeolite and fish meal. If the smell of this stuff is enough to turn you away then try our Odour Reduced range!
An organic based fertiliser which is great for improving soil structure and providing your plants with a sustained release and uptake of nutrients. It is well suited to most gardens and while more frequent application is required than that of a slow release fertiliser, it is a great method to keep your plants and soil healthy all year round.
There are a number of different options when it comes to soluble fertilisers and they act as a great way to give your plants an instant boost of nutrients. Be sure to choose a soluble fertiliser that is suitable for the garden you plan to fertilise as it can be easy to overdo it when using this method. While this can have a negative effect on your plants, don’t be scared from using it! Just be sure to always follow the application rates included with the chosen product.
These are just a few of the many methods you can use for feeding your garden but be sure to do it soon as your plants will be yearning for the nutrients as the weather continues to warm up!
