Most of our liquid products (except liquid iron), can all be mixed and applied together, (The iron should only be mixed with Stimulizer). Or they can be applied separately at various frequencies, based on the soil/plant/lawns requirements and condition.
Unfortunately, as there are a million things that effect the exact amount needed and the frequency of application for each product, there is no one fits all solution. Hence why the experts seem to always have nice looking gardens and lawns and the rest of us struggle.
There are several ways our liquids can be applied:
Watering can: mix the amount suggested (typically 10‐30ml)/9 litres of water.
Hose‐on Bottle (Seasol/weed ‘n feed etc.) or hortex sprayer: mix the minimum amount of water with the product/s to allow you to cover the required area/s. For example, for my front yard, using an old weed n feed hose‐on bottle I add 100ml of each Seaweed Secrets, Activ8mate and Natures Soil Wetter, then top up with enough water to allow you to evenly cover it using the hose‐on bottle (I add about 600ml water), then evenly hose‐on. If using a Hortex sprayer on setting 2 without the restrictor, you shouldn’t need to add water, but if you do, just add as little amount to cover the required area.
Pressure/knapsack sprayer: You need about 15 litres (a little more or less won’t hurt) of water to be applied per 100m2, so take that into consideration when applying. If you have a smaller sprayer, either do several smaller applications i.e. covering 50m at a time and repeat until the entire area is covered, or over a larger area spray with the required amount and if you haven’t used 15 litres/100m2, give a light water‐in

Activ8mate Liquid Fertiliser
By: David on 9 May 2022
I've only been using this product for a short period and have already seen improvements in my plants growth. It seems to have fixed a problem with a chilli plant which had suffered from overwatering. I highly recommend this product.
Feed me! The grass loves it!
By: Kelly on 30 April 2022
Activ8mate is absolutely brilliant. I use it on our Sir Walter Buffalo each month, even as it has cooled down and still seeing rapid repair and growth. Perfect for lawn renovations and repair.

Amazing Green Zoysia
By: David on 23 March 2022
I use the Plant Doctor Seaweed Secrets on both my Empire and Augusta Zoysia in conjunction Natures Soil Wetter, Liquid Iron, Quantum, Stimulizer and Activ8Mate and they bring a depth of healthy colour to my lawn that I have not seen with any other combination of products that I've tried
By: Adam on 8 March 2022
I've used many other liquid ferts, but none that give the all-round boost that this does. Very pleased with results and it lasts a lot longer than other liquid ferts.
By: Jarod on 16 February 2022
Will no longer be going to the Big Green Shed for standard seasol once you give this a go.
Good all round fertiliser

Liquid fert used in special mix
By: Josh on 7 July 2021
I use this on my Empire Zoysia in a special mix from Lawn Tips. I alternate between this and liquid iron each month. Good for cooler parts of the year when granular ferts aren't going to be taken up in the soil well.

By: Tyler on 4 January 2021
I purchased the Ben Sims Lawn Tips pack for my instant turf couch and all of the products have been sensational. The improvement in my couch at a former residence, in which I did not use these products, and the couch at our new place, in which I use these products, is 10 fold. Very happy.
By: Nathan on 9 December 2020
Never tried any kind of liquid fert, unroll I bought and tried this! All I can saw is WOW! Has made such a noticeable improvement, and using it every 2 weeks now! Well worth it!
Thank you plant doctor!
By: Alexander on 4 December 2020
Recently bought this product for the second time. A high quality product, which lasts a long time due to the application rates, and which is also great value. Won't be the last time it's bought!

Very nice liquid fert, seems balanced as in nice burst of green but no super silly growth spurts ect
Good product, thanks .
By: Jack Deen on 23 October 2019
I first saw Ben Simms speak about this product on his YouTube channel. I use it in conjunction with other Plant Dr products and it has really taken my soil health no a new level. I'm noticing more worms etc in my soil which is a classic sign the soul health is good. I have no doubt Activate8mate has contributed to this.
By: Aaron on 20 September 2019
Great product, affordable - much cheaper than buying granulated fert all the time and my lawn loves it.
By: Michael on 20 September 2019
I tried Activ8mate for the first time just over a week ago, and my lawn has already greened up brilliantly. Easy to apply together with seaweed concentrate and liquid humic acid, and no need to water in. Great product, and next day delivery was a bonus. Cheers

The results of using this have been outstanding so far
By: Shannon on 3 June 2019
Been using it for a few weeks now. Seems like it’s working great. Can’t wait to use it in the growing season
Great for in between granular runs
By: Jacob on 18 May 2019
I’ve been swapping between a granular fertiliser and Activ8mate and the results have been outstanding! Being a liquid fertiliser, it is easy to get great even coverage and has a lower risk of burning the leaf as it doesn’t sit or clump on it. Highly recommend on it’s own or as compliment to your existing lawn care.
By: Sean on 30 April 2019
Great product, had just finished up with a run of a rival product and switched to this after running with a bundle pack. Results seen within days. Incredibly fast results but didn't result in a surge in leaf but more a uniformed dense growth across the lawn. Post grubs and mites and this combined with a bundle pack has seen what was nearly a dead lawn , thick lush and most importantly healthy. A must buy
Great for a boost
By: Rebecca on 25 April 2019
Great product for use on a regular basis in between granular fertiliser. Keeps the lawn ticking along nicely.
By: robert on 16 April 2019
Activ8mate has really taken my LaPrima Couch to the next level. Great growth even in Autumn.

Great product made a massive difference from 2 applications. Great value for money
By: Saran on 7 March 2019
I’m very much happy with the product. My lawn was almost dead as it started to show black patches. Few applications of Acti8mate has done a great job, it’s green and pushy now after 6 weeks since first spraying. I recommend the product highly.
By: Michael on 6 March 2019
Activ8mate is the best fertiliser I have ever used - the lawn just looks healthier and doesn't seem to lose its colour so quickly.

Elixir of plant life
By: Leo on 19 February 2019
Loved the 1 Litre bottles. But now ive discovered the 5 Litres. Ill be bathing in this as my lawns have dramatically improved, as ive demonstrated for years that i had a shocking lawn. After the first few apps you could see that Activ8mate was the cpr and now i can cut my lawn with confidence.

By: Jake on 31 January 2019
Incredible value for money per use. Turf is going ballistic growth wise, thickening up nicely and maintaining a deeper green.
Used this product with PD soil wetter & PD seaweed to bring back a large part of turf that was poisoned 3 weeks ago.
Today, everything is back to normal, growing at the same rate and just as healthy as everywhere else!
Excellent results and value.
By: Joshua on 17 January 2019
I’ve been using Activ8mate for the past 8 weeks and have noticed a considerable improvement in the growth and health of my lawn. Combined with Natures Soil Wetter and Seaweed secrets, it’s a winning combo at very affordable rates.
Far better fertiliser than anything from the Big G
By: Peter on 14 January 2019
Over the last few years, I have tried a number of different fertilisers for my Buffalo lawn and surrounding gardens, from Scotts, Yates, Seasol, and Neutrog. Compared to these, Active8Mate has made a drastic improvement to the appearance of the lawn. My Buffalo is far more hardy, healthy and lush, and my hedges are growing a lot faster and fuller (I can finally box hedge!).
Although I invested in a backpack sprayer to get the best of the liquid fertiliser, it was a worthwhile investment especially considering how cost effective and economical Active8Mate is compared to other liquid fertilisers (e.g. Gogo Juice).
All up, Active8Mate is Highly Recommended.
Great Product and service!
By: Martin on 10 January 2019
Loved watching our plants and lawn grow since using Activ8mate. The economy is great compared to other products on the market, and has extra other benefits. Awesome!
By: Michael on 2 January 2019
After just a few application of this product my lawn in thicker, stronger and growing faster than ever. Even the small areas that the dog runs on that were going bare have bounced back and withstanding the punishment. Great Great product.
Awesome Fert and fast acting!

By: Daryn on 20 November 2018
Can't speak highly of this product. Coupled with the slow release fertiliser has worked wonders with my lawn.
