What it does
Garden Delight is a superior fertiliser to other forms of organic material (eg. feedlot or poultry manure).
It contains a balanced range of nutrients to promote water retention, restore soil fertility and grow healthier plants.
Soil is comprised of a multitude of minerals, micro- organisms, organic material and humus. The fact that each component of the soil is equally as important as the next is often overlooked. Earth Life Pty Ltd has developed Garden Delight with sufficient quantities of major and minor elements for strong, healthy plant growth.
The components of Garden Delight (ie organic matter, minerals and micro-organisms) activate the natural cycle of nature, which plays a major role in the production of nutrients and soil improvement. This gives a soil texture and composition that encourages earthworm activity and micro-organism development thereby enhancing plant growth. This increased activity enables more moisture and nutrients to become available, enabling your plants to look fresh and healthy for longer.
There are two categories of nutrients – major nutrients and minor nutrients. For example, calcium is a major nutrient and boron is a minor nutrient.
In order for the calcium to be effectively taken up by the plant, boron must be in sufficient supply. Replacement of only the major nutrients can cause an imbalance. The imbalance will be difficult to diagnose and difficult to correct.
Garden Delight provides the perfect balance of nutrients for permanent gardens whilst enhancing water retention. In planting situations of new gardens, shrubs and trees (including fruit trees),
Garden Delight provides the essential nutrition to establish healthy root structure and accelerate the release of necessary nutrients to ensure your plants continue to thrive and reach their full potential.
Garden Delight is very environmentally friendly, and is safe for use in playgrounds, parks and your home gardens and is also Vegan friendly.
