Use as a supplement to any soil (rather than in place of soil – a common mistake) to provide a natural balance of nutrients and minerals for healthy plant growth.

The naturally generated heat from the production process destroys weed seeds, soil-borne plant pathogens and disease.

IFO Made from 100% greenwaste, our additive-free compost improves the texture, integrity and fertility of your soil, resulting in improved nutrient and moisture retention.

Nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus and countless micronutrients are released slowly by the microorganisms in our compost, ensuring your plants and shrubs have the very best chance of thriving and being protected from a multitude of garden diseases.

Rich in natural nutrients, containing no added fillers and compliant with Bio-Gro New Zealand Organic regulations, our compost is subject to our quality control procedures.

COMPOST IS A SOIL ENHANCER, NOT A SOIL IN ITSELF. PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BELOW FOR APPLICATION OF USE:

When using as a mulch, spread a layer 3 – 4 cm deep over the garden beds and around shrubs.
When preparing beds prior to planting, spread 4 – 5 cm layer of our compost and work in well. It is so much easier to add compost now than once the garden is planted.
When planting shrubs, dig a hole larger than required and place a good layer of our compost on the bottom, then mix equal parts compost and soil together, work around the root ball of the shrub and firm in. Water well.
