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 a scoop or two of Seasol Planting Gel at the bottom of the planting hole or mix it through the backfill soil (Please see back of tub for rates of application). Seasol Planting Gel is a blend of semi-hydrated water storing crystals, Seasol and essential nutrients designed to give 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.
