Give your lawn a boost after the hard winter months and help replenish grassy areas for spring with organic-based lawn fertilisers from DJ Turfcare.
The exclusive supplier of RHS-approved organic-based lawn fertilisers, the full DJ Turfcare portfolio includes the best-selling Mo Bacter Lawn Fertiliser, Mo Bacter Organic Lawn Moss Destroyer, Bio-Lime, Recovery, Lawn Boost and Autumn Lawn Treatment. Its Organic Lawn Boost with biostimulants is ideal for revitalising lawns after the stresses of winter.
Lawn Boost (Composition: 16-3-8 (+2MgO) +1Fe+Bacteria) can be used to feed lawns at the end of the winter or during the growing season to help produce strong, healthy grass which will make a rapid comeback in spring.
Lawn Boost encourages strong rooting after dormant periods and helps to give good drought resistance. The child and pet-safe organic-based composition contains bacteria which convert thatch into plant food and provides nutrients to lawns for 100 days. Available in 10kg bags which cover a 200sq. m area.
“With sustainability running so high on the agenda, the fact that these products are organic is clearly a major plus point in terms of meeting best practice standards, but they also perform far better than chemical fertilisers and this makes them better value for money in the long-run,” said managing director of DJ Turfcare, David Jenkins.
Chemical fertilisers give a sudden boost when first applied, which drop off quite quickly often over a six-week period. Although the immediate impact is not as high with organic-based fertilisers, the drop down is more gradual, lasting around 12 weeks. While organic fertilisers are slightly more expensive, they are often longer lasting and more cost-effective over time.
“We think it’s very important to make the public more aware of the long-lasting effect of organics,” Jenkins continued, “as this isn’t just good for their wallets but will help them protect the planet at the same time. The discerning purchaser will tend to recognise that a better-quality product is also better value overall.”
