Hi All
Just wondering opinions on Fertilizer Brands for both quality and cost.
I seem to prefer Scotts range of products as they are very trusted. I know there are obviously different products in each range eg Lawn and Seed Repair, Lawn Builder etc etc.
Im just interested to hear what Brands everyone trusts out there???
Thanks in advance.

Check out Eco88 available from Farmcraft - has worked well for me - it's a similar formulation to what I used to buy as "Tropic" - good general purpose fertiliser for lawns and gardens but I'd read up on it if you want to put it near natives.

ThanksCroc.
Just googled has a good NPK and pretty versatile, granule form good for spreaders and even half strength on nativez.
Do you stand around and hose in and charge time or get your Clients to whack the sprinkler on it??

I try to arrange it for a showery day - otherwise get the client to hose first and hose in.

www.lawnprideaustralia.com.au check out their maintain, sportsflexx and TX10 ferts. One application is 90 days worth and the cost per kg is way better than Scott’s or anything you can get from the big green shed
