Once upon a time it was recommended to gardeners to use fertiliser for a strong growing garden… these days gardeners are getting a whole new message - putting microbes back into the soil and Trev's here to tell you all about it.

Getting the Goods in your Soil

  • Troforte M is a controlled release plant food that has a special coat technology with over 24 beneficial soil microbes waiting for a little moisture to activate and spring to life spreading rapidly throughout your soil
  • Most soils in backyards are deficient of many trace elements and mineral nutrients, which mean your plants never had the chance to absorb any whilst growing. This is why we need to supplement our food with vitamin tablets
  • Some of the microbes convert nitrogen from the atmosphere to plant food for plants roots, others take locked up phosphorus in the soil and make it available to plants which make your soil and plants shine with healthy growth
  • Different blends are available including the lawn blend, the microbes in this mix tend to eat thatch, this stops you worrying about renovating your lawn and converts the thatch into nutrients so your not wasting any nutrients in the cycle
