Developed to meet the needs of all Australian native plants, Bush Tucker was developed by Neutrog in consultation with native plant expert Angus Stewart and soil scientist Simon Leake, and is recommended by the Australian Plants Society of Victoria Inc.
As with all Neutrog products the Bush Tucker formula was developed over a number of years and was widely trialled by numerous expert native plant growers prior to release. Bush Tucker is a complete, organic-based boosted fertiliser, specifically developed to meet the specialised needs of all Australian native plants.
Utilising a unique process, trace elements have been added to lock up phosphorus, making Bush Tucker ideal for even the most phosphorus-sensitive plants such as grevilleas, banksias and proteas. Bush Tucker not only directly supplies a wide range of essential nutrients, but more importantly provides a catalyst (through the introduction of beneficial bacteria/microbes) for stimulating the natural processes that occur in the soil – unlocking further nutrients and enhancing root growth. Greater root growth provides a greater soil surface area from which your plants can draw nutrients and moisture.
“Native plants are great survivors in the garden but to get them to thrive and reach their full spectacular potential they really need regular fertilising.” – Angus Stewart (media personality, native plant expert, plant breeder & author).
Directions for use
Apply Bush Tucker evenly to pre-soaked soil around the drip line of the plant and water again well. Keep fertiliser at least 20cm away from the base of plant and avoid contact with foliage or flowers. Apply after signs of new season growth and thereafter every 12 weeks, or as required, throughout the growing season.
Established plants: 100g per plant.
Garden beds: 100g per square metre.
Pots: Apply 30g per 8” pot (200mm) around the outer rim, with relative increases/decreases dependent upon pot size.
Planting: Apply 50g per plant to base of hole and cover with 1-5cm of soil. Increase amount for larger plants
