- Can I use your organic compost to re-pot my houseplants?
Absolutely, yes you can. Our compost is an all purpose compost, so you can use it for all your houseplants and outdoor plants.
Supplement the nutrients through the year with our liquid fertiliser. You can also mix in some of our plant feed available in pouches, tubs or bags, to give a lovely slow-release feed.
- Can I use Natural Grower Fertiliser to feed houseplants?
Yes, NG organic fertiliser can be used to feed your houseplants. Both the concentrated liquid and the plant feed mulch can be used.
Mix the mulch in with your compost when replanting into bigger pots. This will give a slow-release feed and help to retain the moisture.
You can pour the liquid around the base of the plants, or even better is bottom watering your house plants, by standing the pot in a bowl of the diluted fertiliser. The liquid will be absorbed up in to the pot.
- Can I use your organic fertiliser to feed my cactus plants?
Yes the fertiliser is great for cactus plants and succulents. It is a balanced fertiliser that is completely natural and made from plants, so all plants both indoor and outdoor benefit from it.
- Does your organic fertiliser have a use by date?
The liquid fertiliser does not have a use by date. Just give it a shake if you leave it sitting for a while to mix in all the lovely small bits of organic matter that will have settled to the bottom. The soil conditioner also does not have a use by date, but over time will develop more of the wonderful natural fungi that it contains. You can still use the soil conditioner if you see fungi developing in it, as the fungi help to break down the soil conditioner, which in turn improves the soil health and increases your plants ability to absorb nutrients.
- Fungus Gnats are attracted to my houseplants, what can I do?
I think everyone will be familiar with fungus gnats appearing from nowhere as soon as fruit starts to go off – where do they all suddenly come from??! If you have fungus gnats appearing around your houseplants it’s a great (although understandably annoying) indication that your potting mixture contains a lot of lovely rich organic matter. The first thing you should do is bottom water your plants rather than watering from the top. This will keep the top inch layer of your pot dry. Gnats like to lay their eggs in moist compost, so keeping the top layer dry will stop them laying eggs. Another natural way to get rid of the gnats is to sprinkle over the entire top layer of the compost in your pot with Ceylon cinnamon. The cinnamon will quickly kill any larvae as they eat it. You can also use sticky stakes to trap the gnats before they lay any eggs. The combination of these three actions will get rid of all the fungus gnats.
