The best way to create and maintain a stunning garden is to use garden fertilisers in addition to plant tonic. Seasol seaweed based plant tonic has been used by Australian and New Zealand commercial growers and home gardeners for over 30 years.
Seasol is your complete garden health treatment. It is a liquid seaweed extract that contains high levels of naturally occurring growth stimulants and other essential compounds which promote strong root growth, reduce transplant shock, help plants cope with temperature extremes like frost, and strengthen cell walls to give plants better resistance to pests and diseases. Seasol also improves germination rates and increases flowering and fruiting capacity.
Seasol can be used in all gardening situations and at all times of the year when using a fertiliser may be inappropriate, for example during winter.
Not all fertilisers are created equal. Developed using nitrogen stabilising technology Tui NovaTec Premium provides a sustained release of easy-to-absorb nitrogen, feeding your plants for up to four months. As a compound fertiliser each granule contains the same available nutrients - so your plants receive a balanced and even spread of all essential nutrients.
This combination results in stronger, healthier plants and higher yields from your garden. Nitrogen stabilising technology benefits our environment too - less nitrogen leaches into our waterways.
Use throughout your garden, and in pots and containers, to reap the rewards of plentiful harvests and prolific blooms.
N-P-K 15-1.3-16.6 + Mg & trace elements.
Tui Pot Power is the premier potting mix for today’s container gardening connoisseurs. This lightweight mix is formulated using superb growing media technology, coupled with superior ingredients. The added benefit of seaweed stimulates root development and improves overall plant health.
Use to maintain a quality growing environment for your potted plants, for sustained plant growth.
