|This organic based powder fertiliser, is an excellent alternative to Growmore.
Also a balanced fertiliser, it can be applied in much the same way and is widely used as a top dressing on lawns, flowers and vegetables. However, the nutrients in BFB are slower to release, excellent when a long term feed is required.
Digging into the soil before planting or mixing in with your compost, BFB is the multi-purpose organic fertiliser. Buy Now
Application rate:140g sq. m or metre run applied in the seed bed or for initial top dressing. A further 70g per sq. m is recommended during flowering.
Magnesium Sulphate + MgO + SO4
|Also known as Epsom salts, MgO is necessary for the colouring of leaves. Heavy rain will readily wash MgO out of light soils and can also be low when potash or high-potassium fertilisers have been used. MgO deficiency can affect vegetables like cabbages, lettuces and potatoes, fruit such as apples, cherries and grapes. Leaves turn yellow between veins and around the edges, and may eventually turn red, purple or brown. Apply as a foliar spray or spread over the soil. Buy Now
Application rate:17g sq. m. Rake in well.
Kieserite, permitted as an organic nutrient source by the European Commission Regulation, is an earth mineral mined from naturally occurring marine deposits. Chemically known as magnesium sulphate monohydrate, it provides soluble sources of both Magnesium and Sulphur for plant nutrition, and is not effected by, or effects, soil ph. Essential for healthy leaves and photosynthesis, a deficiency in magnesium is common in tomatoes, apples, grape vines, raspberries, roses and rhododendrons.
Flowers and Vegetables: prior to sowing or planting, ?????
As top dressing for established plants: ???????
Shrubs and Trees: as a top dressing in spring, ????? applied evenly over the area covered by the branch spread.
Sulphate of Potash (0-0-50)
Another straight fertiliser, this product is very soluble and fast acting, adding essential Potash to soils and composts. SOP helps improve the quality of fruits and flowers and strengthens plant resistance to disease and inclement weather. Symptoms of Potash deficiency can be poor flowering and fruit sets, as well as the leaves turning yellow around the margins which eventually will become brown and burnt. Severe cases show leaf spotting and scorch of foliage. Buy Now
Single Superphosphate (0-18-0)
|Made by the action of sulphuric acid on raw rock phosphate (also called Appatite) this is one of the world's most important fertilisers, and probable one of the oldest inorganic ones. Partly soluble and a usable form of phosphorous by plants, it must be well dug in. Ideal for feeding root vegetables such as carrots and beetroot, it also assists in seed germination. Use in soils containing a sufficiency of lime so as not to waste this valuable nutrient through poor plant uptake. Buy Now
Application rate:70g sq. m. Dig in well.
Sulphate of Iron +Fe
|Iron is a trace element used in many fertilisers, but alone it's used mainly on lawns. It helps with diseases such as fusarium patch and take-all patch which like high ph turf surfaces, as well as helping in worm control. Its most common use though is as a moss killer. Regular applications every 6-8 weeks in the winter months will help stop any moss invading your lawn. It also has the added benefit of burning off certain weeds if used regularly and helps prevent algae problems. Buy Now
Application rate:35g sq. m base or dressing or 60g diluted in 10 litres of water to cover 18 sq. m.
