Good lawn and garden care requires the right nutrient combination. Are you struggling to keep your lawn looking it’s best all year round? Perhaps you have a mineral deficiency in your soil (this is a common issue in our sandy Perth soils!). Aside from the traditional NPK nutrients, there are several materials that help with promoting healthy green gardens and lawns.

Fulvic Acid

Described as the ‘missing link’ in plant nutrition, fulvic acid is an incredibly versatile product that is considered the ultimate nutrient booster – just one single fulvic acid molecule is capable of carrying 60 or more minerals and trace elements directly to cells!

As a naturally occurring organic acid found in humus, the highly nutritious layer of decomposing earth, Fulvic acid is commonly associated with humic acid, as they are both types of humic substances that come from humus.

Known as a vehicle for vitamins and minerals, fulvic acid helps absorb and put nutrients to better use. Fulvic acid is quite a unique organism that is able to pass through cellular membranes with ease, thus boosting the absorption and assimilation of other nutrients and minerals. In nature, fulvic acid helps nutrients and minerals absorb through a plant’s cell walls.

While plants are able to produce many of their own vitamins, fulvic acid acts as a supplement, significantly improving the nutrient uptake. As fulvic acid fans, we have a selection of products from Plant Doctor including Fulvic Acid Liquid, Stimulizer or Quantum H.

Humic Acid

Humic acid is one of the champions of lawn and garden care, providing plants and soil with a concentrated dose of essential nutrients, vitamins and trace elements in an incredibly organic and natural manner.

Using Humic in your yard comes with a number of benefits including increasing root growth, stimulating beneficial microbes while reducing harmful ones, increasing soil moisture retention, improving the soil and strengthening a plant’s immune system. Basically, Humic acid retains moisture and nutrients in the root zone and helps the plant put them to good use.

Iron

Iron, represented by Fe on the Periodic Table, is a vital micro-nutrient that plants require to form chlorophyll.

Simply put, chlorophyll is what gives plants, lawns and algae their green colour. Without iron, chlorophyll cannot be produced and will result in leaves turning yellowish in colour.

In short, lawns and gardens can be iron deficient. An iron deficiency doesn’t always mean there’s a lack of iron in the soil, but that the plant is unable to absorb it. This could be due to a soil pH level that’s too high or low, overuse of phosphorus, manganese, copper and zinc, waterlogging and excessive thatch.

Plant Doctor’s Champion MaxGreen Liquid Fertiliser is high in both Iron and Nitrogen for green colour & to correct iron deficiencies in your lawn & plants. Great for our Western Australian soils!

Seaweed/Kelp

Seaweed, or kelp, one of its many different variants, is an indispensable bio-stimulant and terrific fertiliser.

Seaweed contains complex carbohydrates, which promote good and active soil life. This helps stimulate the microbial fungi in the soil, assisting plants in their uptake of nutrients and helps defends plants from soil borne diseases. Containing natural plant hormones, seaweed is a very effective measure for preventing transplant shock whenever you move a plant around the garden.

As a core component of plant health, seaweed has many other benefits including, increasing brix levels, improving flowering and fruiting, increasing a plant’s general health, helping root stimulation and providing bio-protection via root-zone stimulation.

Liquid Worm Casings

Where there’s worms there’s life! Although worms don’t produce nutrients, what they consume they convert into vermicastings – one of nature’s finest soil conditioners. Worm castings contain millions of beneficial bacteria and other organisms which are essential to soil and plant health.

Put it all together with Plant Doctor’s Activ8Extra which is a biologically enhanced liquid fertiliser with added organics including kelp, worm extracts and humates.
