Hoof & Horn (13.5-0-0)

Hoof & Horn This 100% organic fertiliser is a by-product of the meat processing industry, and as such may not be for the squeamish. However, it is one of the better organic nitrogen fertilisers, and contains a nice dash of phosphorous to boot. With a slow natural release of nitrogen, some immediately available with the rest continuing to release over 4-5 months, it is perfect for use under glass as well as also being used as an ingredient in other fertilisers such as John Innes Base.     Buy Now

Dried Blood (12-0-0)

Dried Blood You've probably guessed it, another by-product of the meat industry. If you want organic though, then this is one of the most effective organic fertiliser around. Solid rapid release of nitrogen is achieved, despite its low solubility, due to small particle size and easy decomposition after application. Especially beneficial when growing leaf crops such as lettuce, spinach and cabbages, it also makes an excellent top dressing for foliage plants in the green house and conservatory. Buy Now

Calcified Seaweed Meal

Dried Blood The cycle created by this organic fertiliser is a significant reason for its importance.

Quickly colonized by bacteria living in soil, they feed off the huge reservoirs of calcium, nitrogen and phosphorus available in the seaweed, enriching the soil quality. The fertiliser nutrients are also transferred directly to the root structures of plants, making calcified seaweed doubly effective as a fertiliser product.

Plants need nutrients beyond calcium, nitrogen and phosphorous, such as iron and carbon, and with additional trace elements, calcified seaweed can provide it all.

Notable for its flexibility, calcified seaweed not only regulates the ph. of your soil, but it can also be used throughout the calendar year.     Buy Now

Application rate:75g sq. m.
