Garden Lime more >

Garden Lime

Garden Lime A very essential product for any keen gardener, Proctors Garden Lime is excellent in increasing ph levels on all soils types where a reduction in soil acidity is required. Very acid soils prevent nutrients being available to the plant, and can greatly reduce productivity, especially around the allotment. Know what ph your crop likes, then test, and lime accordingly. Be sure to lime 6 months apart from nitrogen fertilisers, as they can cancel each other out, and react badly in the soil.     Buy Now

Single Superphosphate (0-18-0)

Single Superphosphate 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.
Magnesium Sulphate + MgO + SO4 more >

Magnesium Sulphate + MgO + SO4

Magnesium Sulphate 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.

Dried Blood

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.
