Need to know what to feed your plants during Autumn? Our Year-Round Fertilising Programmes have been specifically developed by experts who rely upon optimum plant growth to earn their living. Like humans, plants thrive on regular feeding throughout the year – happy, healthy plants are also more resistant to pests and disease.
Hint – if you are wanting to achieve even better fertilising results, take the quantity recommended for feeding your plants for the season, divide it into 3 equal parts, and apply 1 part in each month of the season. It is not about applying more, but rather, applying more regularly. This way, your plants receive a continual feed of nutrients in order to achieve optimal health.

Any stressed plants would love some help to recover, so applying products rich in seaweed and organic matter like GOGO Juice or liquid Seamungus can help improve your soil’s water-holding capacity and the plant’s ability to recover from stress. Monthly applications of GOGO Juice will also help to increase the microbial population in your soil.

Soils are generally still warm, which will help any new plants to develop roots and get a head start on winter. More importantly, the roots they develop now will be the ones they rely on when summer comes around again, so you want them to develop well. Using 100% certified organic Seamungus, Rapid Raiser or Rooster Booster in the planting hole is recommended for any new plantings.

Now is the time feed your roses and all other flowering plants (except natives) with Sudden Impact for Roses. Watering in with GOGO Juice will encourage a faster uptake of the nutrients by the plant. Pop some around your perennials too.
✅ 𝐆𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥 𝐋𝐚𝐰𝐧 & 𝐆𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐧
For those who wish to use certified organic products and/or prefer to simply use one general purpose fertiliser across your entire garden, you can use Bounce Back, Rapid Raiser, Seamungus or Rooster Booster on your garden, and Blade Runner on your lawn areas.

Sprinkle some Strike Back for Orchids on your orchids and any potted colour this season, as it’s suitable for all potted fruiting and flowering plants (not just orchids). If you do, you’ll be rewarded with cascades of colour over autumn and winter.

To get that beautiful lush lawn which will be the envy of all, feed and water regularly. As we move into cooler weather, you can set your mower a little lower. Fertilise with Sudden Impact for Lawns and water in with GOGO Juice, and sit back and wait for the compliments! Now is also a great time to fix bare patches in your lawn. Top dress the patches with Seamungus and spread lawn seed over the area. Water it in using GOGO Juice. A hedge loves a fertiliser with a higher nitrogen to potassium ratio, so Sudden Impact for Lawns is also great for hedging plants.

Feeding now with Kahoona will satisfy any acid-loving plants’ nutritional requirements without altering the pH of your soil. Kahoona is an organic based, chemically boosted fertiliser, specifically developed to enhance the growth and flower development of acid loving plants such as camellias, gardenias, azaleas, daphne and rhododendrons. It’s also great for blueberries!
Apply Bush Tucker to your winter flowering natives, and water in with GOGO Juice. Winter-flowering natives include heathland plants, grevillea, hakea and wattle. They’ll bring some color to your garden and the birds and bees will love them too. Bush Tucker is suitable for even the most phosphorous-sensitive natives.

Lightly tip-prune citrus trees to encourage new growth and spread Gyganic for Veggies, Fruit and Citrus around the drip zone of the plant. Apply Gyganic again after 8 weeks. You can also use Gyganic on established potted plants; the application rate is a quarter of that of a ground-grown plant.
Applying Whoflungdung to your garden at this time of the year will not only help prevent new weeds from growing and keep the soil temperature more constant, but it will also give your plants a gentle nutrient boost.

If you need to condition your soil, GOGO Juice is the best medicine – literally teeming with beneficial microbiology and is essentially a pro-biotic for your soil and plants, it combines the “catalystic” power of providing a wide diversity of beneficial bacteria and fungi with the well documented benefits of applying kelp and humates.
