Do your garden and the environment a favour by using Garden Soil to restore and maintain tired, poor quality soils.  Fertilisers on their own won't restore the balance; organic matter is also needed - this premium quality soil is one of the easiest ways to add it

FEATURES

  • Gypsum improves soil texture, provides plants with the calcium they need to strengthen their structure and boosts disease resistance
  • Wetting agent enhances water absorption into the soil or potting mix and helps plants take up nutrients
  • Made from composted organic materials from renewable sources. Contains no animal by-products (manures or blood & bone) so has no odour, just a fresh earthy smell
  • Ideal for topdressing raised garden beds that have 'slumped' or working into topsoil to rejuvenate it before planting

 

SUITABLE FOR

  • Vegetable gardens including raised beds, tubs and planter boxes to improve soil texture and encourage beneficial soil microbes
  • Garden beds to reinvigorate tired and depleted soils
  • All plants including phosphorus-sensitive natives
  • Safe to use for new plants - the well-composted organics and controlled release of nutrients from the Scotts Osmocote® mean it will not burn soft leaves or tender young roots

 

NOT SUITABLE FOR

  • Don't use in hydroponic growing systems, ponds or pots submerged in water
  • Do not use on lawns - use only specifically named lawn topdress soils on grassed areas

HOW TO USE

  1. Add to soils before planting annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, shrubs, trees and climbers
  2. Mix some through the existing soil before topping up with the remaining new soil - this promotes good drainage and root growth.
  3. Topdress existing garden beds with a 5-10cm layer once or twice a year to replenish organic matter which has broken down and nutrients used by plants

 

WHEN TO USE

  • Garden Soil can be added to gardens at any time of the year, either incorporated into planting soil or as a topdress
