Important reasons to choose organic!
  • Organic fertilisers are of benefit to the soil, not just the immediate crop.
  • Natural products based on kelp, rock minerals, fish and animal manures have a slow release.
  • Chemical fertilisers are highly soluble so may wash into the waterways causing toxic algal blooms.
  • The fast, lush growth caused by chemical fertilisers also attracts pests and fungi to the plants.

Material Safety Data Sheet
PL101

Can I use Happy Roses on other plants?
Yes. Happy Roses can be used all over the garden, especially on plants with waxy leaves. On sensitive looking leaves do a plant test patch first.
Does Happy Roses kill aphids?
It is not designed to kill aphids, but it does act as an effective repellent. To kill insects, use Beat-A-Bug Naturally Based Insect Spray.
What is the best way to control black spot and other fungal diseases on my roses?
General good gardening practices are always beneficial. For instance, roses should be planted at a distance apart at which they do not touch each other; watering should never be done from above, as drops spread fungal disease; roses should get at least six hours of sunlight per day; they need a well fertilised soil with plenty of organic matter (sheep manure is particularly good) and they should receive frequent deep watering.
In addition to the above, Happy Roses should be applied regularly. Naturally occurring sulphur and seaweed extract in Happy Roses controls existing black spot while the general qualities of the product boost plant immunity against further attack. If at any stage black spot should re-occur, remove damaged foliage and discard or burn.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how delighted I am with the Backyard Bloom (Ed. now called Organic Blooms) fertiliser. I have been using it fortnightly on my bean plants and am having a wonderful result. Before I used to use 'flower and fruit' products because I could never find an organic high potash liquid. I will be using it with all my flowers now as well as my tomatoes!

It uses Tasmanian seaweed in a cold-press process. Kelp contains a comprehensive range of trace elements and amino acids essential to maintaining an organic garden. Use it to:
  • soak seed, seedlings and new fruit trees to reduce transplant stress,
  • increase fruit production by foliar spraying,
  • increase tolerance to heat, cold, drought, pests and diseases.

Soil Probiotic
  • Based on beneficial and Effective Micro-organisms ('EM') which enhance soil health and biology, naturally
  • 'EM' cultures are non-pathogenic, not genetically-engineered or modified (non-GMO), and not chemically synthesized
  • These probiotic organisms, produced via a ferment process, directly enhance plant growth (germination, flowering, fruiting and ripening), producing higher yielding crops
  • Beneficial micro-organisms are proven to produce bio-active substances, vitamins, hormones, enzymes, amino acids, and antibiotics, which enrich and detoxify the soil
  • Research indicates Effective Micro-organism cultures may
    • improve drought, frost, pest and disease resistance
    • suppress soil-borne pathogens
    • accelerate the decomposition of organic wastes
    • increase the availability of mineral nutrients and useful organic compounds to plants
    • enhance the activities of already present beneficial micro-organisms, such as mycorrhiza, nitrogen-fixing bacteria
    • reduce the need for chemical fertilisers and harsh chemicals
  • Application: best when soil is moist and warm and UV light is low. Minimum dilution is 10 ml per 1 litre of water. Use to soak seeds, inoculating container grown plants and as a foliar spray on all plants (fruit, crops, lawn and compost piles)

Trace Element Mix certified product for organic gardens
Trace element deficiencies in plants are hard to diagnose without lab testing as multiple deficiencies often occur simultaneously, especially after major rain events or in sandy soils.
This concentrated, balanced certified organic blend of micro-nutrients allows you to apply all the significant trace nutrients lacking in most fertilizers and Australian soils, without the necessity and expense of a soil analysis test.
Micro-nutrient deficiencies in the soil are common and widespread with likely symptoms to include:
  • yellowing or disfiguration of leaves
  • stunted growth
  • poor plant and vegetable quality
  • restricted nutrient uptake
  • shedding of flowers and fruit
  • low plant vigour

Trace Element Mix ensures critical trace element availability including:
  • iron
  • boron
  • cobalt
  • copper
  • manganese
  • zinc
  • molybdenum
  • silicon
  • potassium
  • magnesium
  • sodium
  • calcium
  • carbon

Apply as a foliar spray or soil drench at 10 ml per litre when deficiency symptoms occur to all veggies, lawns, fruit trees, natives, etc.
Size: 1 Litre bottle makes a minimum of 100 litres

How do you decide which fertiliser to use?
For gardeners with large areas, planning new orchards or market gardening, a soil test is essential. It gives you a starting point to judge your soil's improvement over the years and identifies initial problems that have to be addressed. Without the information from a soil test, large sums of money can be wasted on inappropriate fertiliser applications or young trees lost due to nutrient deficiencies.
For home gardeners it is hard to go wrong just adding compost to the soil, with organic seaweed or fish fertiliser to help seedlings along. Organically certified fertilisers such as NTS Instant Humus and Organic Link can safely be used in any gardening situation. Soils vary a great deal from region to region, in some areas of Australia soils are low in magnesium whereas SE Queensland is the reverse, often far too high in magnesium but low in calcium. As a general rule Australian soils are deficient in trace elements which is why a seaweed spray such as Natrakelp is a useful addition.
Checking with a local organic gardening organisation will give you the benefit of the members long experience and understanding of your area's climate and soils. See our links page for websites.
Why buy organically certified fertiliser?
English is a constantly evolving language and changing all the time. Many words have several meanings and 'organic' is one of these. 'Organic' meaning carbon-based is one meaning used as the opposite of inorganic. Grown without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides is simply another meaning, that has developed semantically since the early 1900's. This is obviously a valid meaning as the function of language is communication and this meaning is understood by millions of people world-wide.
Organically certified fertilisers are those where the original materials and the processes to manufacture them have been audited by an organic certifying organisation. This means that tests are done for heavy metal residues and chemical residues such as fungicides. To give an example, gypsum mined as rock could be available 'organically certified'; gypsum as a waste product from gyprock manufacture with residues including fungicides could not be 'organically certified'.
