To-do lists are long this time of year, but if you're hosting Christmas lunch and want to get the lawn looking awesome in time for Santa and the family, here's Plant Doctor's tips!
If your lawn is looking worn and it’s your turn to host Christmas lunch, Plant Doctor’s latest blog has the seasonal tips to ensure luscious green grass and fast.
Whether you are hoping to enjoy an afternoon of backyard cricket, have an alfresco Christmas lunch or impress visiting relatives, healthy gardens and lawns is key.
We understand that to-do lists are long this time of year, but these simple tips will provide a quick green up and health boost.
Lawns and gardens, or more accurately, the soil beneath them is alive and growing and need feeding and nourishment, just like anything else alive really.
The recent rain has provided a temporary growth boost, but there’s a few additional steps you can take to maximise this.
For those time poor individuals, an application of a slow-release mineral fertiliser will give your lawns and gardens an initial charge and deliver sustained nutrition for up to three months, our Champion Lawn and Fairway Fertiliser is ideal for this.
This granular fertiliser is very efficient and helps reduce leaching by capturing free nutrients and storing them for release to the lawn and beneficial soil microbes when needed.
For the super time poor or those who leave lawn care to the last minute, our Liquid Iron is your best chance of a fast green up without the growth, though the results will vary depending on the lawn and conditions.
Our Liquid Iron is super charged with fulvic acid and helps to correct iron deficiencies in lawns, plants and crops and produces a rich green colour in leaves.
Activ8mate is a both a fertiliser and soil inoculant that feeds plants essential nutrients, delivering a boost to assist with growth and help any NPK deficiencies.
Seaweed Secrets is concentrated seaweed and boosted with humic and fulvic acid and helps support beneficial microbial activity while revitalising lawns, plants and soil.
Our liquid products typically provide the best results as they will help improve the soil, feed the microbes as well as deliver essential nutrients for growth.
They will also help your lawns and gardens build drought tolerance, something they will need in the upcoming months.
When using liquid products, always looks for products containing humic or fulvic acid or that have natural chelating properties.
These work more efficiently and provide a quicker nutrient uptake by the plants and lawns while also resulting in less wastage or runoff.
First time owning lawn. Gave the team at plant doctor a ring and they supplied me with a wealth of information. Products turned up quickly.
Will definitely be getting more 8 weeks difference been using stimulizer, activ8mate, soil wetter, seaweed secrets and champion fertiliser. Was super fast delivery.
