Because sometimes nature needs a helping hand!
We all know plants need water to thrive. But to really nurture your plants, and get abundant lush foliage, flowers & fruit, plants really need to be fed regularly.
For healthy strong growth, vibrant blooms and greener foliage, all plants also need balanced feeding. Yates Thrive Natural organic based plant food offers a wide range of complete plant foods, including plant foods for all purpose and those suitable for specific plant types. They provide the correct blend of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to meet specific plant needs. They're also quick and easy to use.
One of our most popular plant foods is the Yates Thrive Natural Fish & Seaweed+ Plant Food Concentrate. The Yates team decided to test this product with some independent growing trials via Eurofins Agroscience Services, Hastings, NZ. The trials were conducted over 10 weeks commencing October 2015 on both cos lettuce and pansy seedlings. Both plants were grown in a basic potting media in a greenhouse over 10 weeks. Eurofins tested the impact of feeding the plants Thrive Natural Fish & Seaweed+, versus just water on it’s own. We think the video from the trials speaks for itself!
Why such a difference?
Yates Thrive Natural Fish & Seaweed+ contains cold composted fish & seaweed, a gentle extraction method that preserves more of the delicate growth boosting compounds. This is combined with powerful levels of NPK.
What is NPK?
Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) are the three main nutrients that plants need for healthy thriving growth. Different plant types need them in different ratios depending on if they are fruiting, flowering or foliage plants.
