Right royal fertilisers for all home gardeners

Right royal fertilisers for all home gardeners

Every home gardener deserves to use the best products to grow great crops, healthy foliage and gorgeous blooms. Daltons have released a new range of Goldcote fertilisers which have each been specially blended by their team using high quality, commercially proven ingredients.

Like the recently released Extend Complete fertiliser, this new range harnesses the same Daltons patented Exact Technology, which means targeted delivery of nutrients to plants without any loss. Most kiwi gardeners prefer to use products that are safe and gentle on the environment and their garden. The special coating on each Goldcote fertiliser granule means nutrients stay where they are needed with less nitrogen leaching into the environment, making it a safe choice.

Colin Parker, General Manager of Daltons, says; “We worked hard developing this technology. The ingredients in this new range have been available to the commercial market for the past few years with fantastic results, so we are really happy to be able to bring the same performance to kiwi home gardeners.”

The new range is versatile and easy to use for new plantings, general maintenance or as a nutrient top-dress. Whether it’s feeding plants in garden beds, pots or containers, indoors or outdoors; they provide the perfect blend of trace elements, including enhanced magnesium and potassium.

There are four formulations in the new range (general landscaping/gardening, roses and flowers, vegetables and herbs, and fruit and citrus trees), designed to suit all gardening needs:
· Goldcote for landscaping and gardening - A staple for any gardening shed, this all purpose formulation is ideal for fertilising garden beds, pots, hanging baskets and general landscape use. Just one easy application feeds plants for the entire growing season.

· Goldcote for all roses and flowers - Safe to use both indoors and outdoors on all roses and flowers and offers reliable fertiliser delivery for nine months. This formulation is enhanced with potassium which promotes more vigorous flower blooms for longer.

· Goldcote for all vegetables and herbs - One application feeds all vegetables, herbs, strawberries, tomatoes and potato plants for six months and encourages growth of more tasty crops.

· Goldcote for all fruit and citrus trees - To keep them healthy and producing plenty of fruit, citrus trees need extra feeding. This formulation provides everything new or existing trees need for up to 12 months, to increase plant growth and fruit production. The enhanced calcium and magnesium also promotes healthy leaves and helps correct any magnesium deficiencies which many citrus suffer from.

The new Daltons Goldcote range dust free formulation comes in a handy tub for easy access and application. The range retails for $12.00 inc GST for a 500gm tub and is available nationwide now through Bunnings, and all good gardening centres.
