Preparing the perfect spot:
Remove weeds and dig compost and organic matter through the soil to prepare the area for planting. Then dig a planting hole as deep as the root ball and roughly wider than the plant, loosening the soil around the planting zone
Put Seasol Plant + Soil Booster at the bottom of the planting hole or mix it through the soil before planting. (Please see back of pack for rates of application). Seasol Plant + Soil Booster contains a rich blend of natural ingredients and seaweed to stimulate root development, promote healthy growth and revitalise soils to give your plants the best start possible.
Carefully position the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, ensuring that you plant it at the same depth as it was in the original container. Gently but firmly compress the soil around the plant and water in well with Seasol.
Getting your plants off to a great start:
Apply a layer of mulch to help conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Then 1 week after planting apply Seasol to promote strong healthy roots, increase plant resistance to stresses like heat, drought, frost, pest and disease and boost growth and performance. Continue to apply Seasol fortnightly throughout the year.
Taking care of your plant above and below the ground:
2 weeks after planting apply PowerFeed with Troforte. It is an organically enriched granular plant food that delivers a balance of slow and quick release nutrients to promote vigorous growth and stimulate flowering and fruiting. The granules are coated with millions of good soil microbes, which come to life when they come into contact with water and are essential for keeping your soils and plants happy.
Stimulating growth, flowering and fruiting:
Continue to give plants regular doses of PowerFeed Plant Food and Seasol four weeks after applying PowerFeed with Troforte. It’s an organically based liquid fertiliser and soil conditioner that you can use on everything in the garden including native plants. It promotes vigorous growth and stimulates flowering and fruiting. Because it’s a liquid fertiliser it’s fast acting, so you see results quickly. Apply it every 2 weeks.
