PLANT FOOD: LATEST PRODUCTS
A new organic feed range and updated tomato food
0 RGANIC gardening and houseplants are the current big trends and two leading brands are following suit with their latest product releases.
This year, Scotts and Westland have gone big on indoor plants and non-chemical solutions for growing media and lawn care, as well as keeping on top of pests and diseases. The Scotts Company has launched its Origins range, which consists of a liquid plant food, compost, grow bags and lawn food. It also includes an easy-touse ‘control’ range for protection against weeds, pests and slugs.
All the products are Organic Farmers & Growers Certified, and company spokeswoman Eliza Nicholas described them as ‘developed to help gardeners of all levels achieve results and see their gardens flourish’.
Westland has also introduced new products, including a houseplants range of potting mix, liquid fertiliser, drop feeder and a moisture indicator stick.
There are new potting mix and feeds for cacti and succulents, bonsai, orchids and citrus plants.
Box and hydrangeas get new liquid feeds and there is a hydrangea colourant so you can change flowers from pink to blue. A new organic seaweed feed is now available to boost growth, flowering and cropping.
Westland has also launched Big Tom tomato food, developed to maximise yields and crop flavour. It contains easy-to-absorb nutrients and a root-growth booster to create healthier crops with more disease resistance.
