Description

Key features:

  • Rejuvenates impoverished soils
  • Improves soil texture
  • Increases beneficial microbe and earthworm populations
  • Improves water holding

How it works:

  • Compost adds organic matter to the soil to replace that lost through continual cultivation and cropping. Constant hoeing, digging and raking eventually destroys the structure of the soil – compost rebuilds it.
  • It has been designed and is guaranteed to improve the overall texture and quality of soils

How to use:

  • Prepare your garden soil before planting by thoroughly working a 10cm layer of Compost & NutirCast into the top 15cm or so of soil with a rake. Close the bag tightly after use
  • Add another 10cm layer of compost to the bed and mix it into the previously amended soil. This should create a 15-20cm raised bed.
  • Use as a mulch after planting (excellent for mulching around edibles)
  • Water thoroughly after planting and as frequently as possible until plants are established
  • For best results, after three months feed again or condition with NutriCast

Maximum application rates:

  • Sensitive plants 25L/m²
  • Tolerant plants 90L/m²

When to use:

  • All year round
  • Whenever soil is being prepared for new plantings
  • At the start of Summer as a mulch to protect bare soils, reduce evaporation and insulate soils improving water retention
