Directions for use
Directions for planting in garden beds
- Water plants thoroughly before planting and allow to drain.
- Add a layer of mix to the planting area.
- Dig a hole, approximately twice the depth and width of the root ball of your plant.
- Gently loosen the root ball of your plant and position in the centre of the hole.
- Fill in with Tui Garden Mix.
- Press soil gently around the base of the plant.
- Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.
Use Tui Garden Mix to fill new garden beds.
For existing garden beds - create a 10cm layer of Tui Garden Mix over existing soil and dig in to approximately 10cm deep. This will help break up clay based soils to improve drainage and add valuable organic matter to sandy soils.
Spread Tui Garden Mix around the base of trees and shrubs as a mulch to add nutrients, aid moisture retention, prevent weed growth, and reduce soil erosion.

Tui Compost is the natural garden ingredient - the staple in every Kiwi shed! Healthy, conditioned soil is essential to get the most from your plants.
Tui Compost adds nutrient-rich organic matter to replenish your soil with nutrients used during the growing season. The combination of organic matter, blood and bone and gypsum will: help break up heavy or clay soil; improve drainage in compacted soil; and increase water holding capacity in sandy soil. It also increases microbial activity, and encourages earthworms - a gardener's best friend!
Not all fertilisers are created equal. Developed using nitrogen stabilising technology Tui NovaTec® Premium fertiliser 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, as 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.
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.
