eco-oil is a registered organic miticide and insecticide. It controls a range of problem insects including scale, aphids, two-spotted mite, whitefly, mealybugs and citrus leafminer. Safe for use on veggies, as well as ornamentals, with no withholding period. Spray and eat on the same day! Also safe for beneficial insects like bees, ladybeetles and earthworms.
eco-oil is now HIPPO Enhanced! HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil is a revolutionary approach to pest control and is the results of a 3 year research project with Charles Sturt University.
The project investigated the natural defense mechanisms of plants, in particular the way plants produce volatile organic compounds when being attacked by pests. These compounds act as SOS messages to beneficial insects letting them know that tasty snacks are on nearby plants! A whole range of beneficial insects are attracted including ladybeetles, lacewings, hoverflies and parasitoids.
The HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil formulation replicates this defence mechanism by including these organic compounds into spray. The research clearly showed that the HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil will attract beneficial insects into the garden. Pretty amazing hey?
So use HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil to kill those troublesome pests and at the same time it will attract beneficial insects to help get your garden ecosystem into better balance.
Sudden Impact for Lawns is an organic based, chemically boosted fertiliser specifically developed for new and established lawns along with other non-flowering plants such as palms, ferns and conifers, as well as leafy vegetables and herbs.
Sudden Impact for Lawns is blended in a granular form. Like Sudden Impact for Roses, Sudden Impact for Lawns combines the ‘best of both worlds’. Its organic base provides a full range of plant nutrients in a slow release form, whilst the carefully selected water-soluble nutrients have been added to maximise the performance of each application.
The balance and ratio of nutrients combined with the very best of raw materials are the secret to the success of Sudden Impact for Lawns – the ratio of nitrogen and potassium is ideal for promoting growth, and more specifically the levels of iron and magnesium have been boosted. These particular elements play a crucial role in the formation of chlorophyll, which is the substance that makes green plants green. The chlorophyll molecule has the unique capacity to convert the energy of the sun into chemical energy (through photosynthesis).
It is ideal for all lawns including Buffalo and all non-flowering plants.
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 and Rhododendrons.
The higher potassium to nitrogen ratio within Kahoona, plays a crucial role in enhancing flower development, whilst the boosted levels of iron and magnesium help maintain healthy green foliage, aiding in preventing the yellowing leaves which are often seen in late winter and early spring. Kahoona is manufactured into a pellet form – each pellet contains the full range of macro and micro plant nutrients along with good levels of organic carbon. This organic carbon helps in retaining the water soluble nutrients within the soil, and aids in regulating their uniform uptake by plants.
Following successful trials, Kahoona has been endorsed by Camellias South Australia, the Australian Rhododendron Society (SA Branch), the Camellia Society of WA and Camellias Illawarra. These endorsements provide confidence to use and recommend Kahoona.
6:2:8 – plus the full range of secondary nutrients and micronutrients in a natural form.
This magnificent super mulch may be one of our greatest accomplishments yet, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out the incredible benefits that Whoflungdung has to offer:
It’s safe– The chicken poo is inoculated with good bacteria and everything that is captured in the screening process is disease free, weed-seed free and totally safe
It’s a feeder – Whoflungdung adds nutrients to the soil for both the beneficial bacteria and plants to feed on
It’s a stopper– Whoflungdung aids in restricting and reducing the growth of weeds
It’s a facilitator – Whoflungdung contains and introduces to the soil the wide diversity of good bacteria from the inoculated chicken poo
It’s absorbent – Whoflungdung helps retain moisture and warmth in the garden
It’s sustainable – We turn the chicken poo into a range of fertilisers which we return to the farmers who grow the straw and grain
Where does Whoflungdung come from?
As the name suggests, Whoflungdung is sourced from chicken poo. While that may not sound very glamorous, the intricate and sophisticated workings of this smart product certainly suggest otherwise.
Whoflungdung begins in the chicken shed, where chicken farmers coat the floors in straw to make the chooks feel more comfortable and promote better health. This straw originally comes from various crop farmers, who also supply the grain that is fed to the chickens. The chickens eat the grain and their grain-fed poo then gets mixed up with the straw, where it stays for three months. After three months, the farmers scoop out the chicken sheds and bring the lovely straw and poo combination to Neutrog, where it sits for a further six months composting in our facility.
After nine months of being immersed in this nutrient rich, bacterially diverse environment, the straw has well and truly started decomposing, which makes all the difference when applied to soil.
Sudden Impact for Roses is ideal for all flowering plants except natives and bare-rooted roses.
9:4:12 – plus the full range of secondary nutrients and micronutrients in a natural form along with boosted levels of Iron and Magnesium.
After many years of research and development by Neutrog in conjunction with the Rose Society of SA and a number of professional rose growers, Sudden Impact for Roses was launched in August 2001. Sudden Impact for Roses combines the best of both worlds. Its organic base provides a full range of plant nutrients in a slow release form, whilst the carefully selected water-soluble nutrients have been added to maximise the performance of each application.
The balance and ratio of nutrients combined with the very best of raw materials are the secret to the success of Sudden Impact for Roses. The organic raw materials are conditioned utilising a unique composting process and once completed, the water-soluble nutrients are carefully blended into the organic base before being pasteurised and pelleted.
Sudden Impact for Roses is recommended and endorsed by the Rose Societies of South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and the South West Rose Group of WA along with the National Rose Society of Australia and Heritage Roses in Australia Inc.
Sudden Impact for Roses is used on the 16,000 roses at the Flemington Racecourse Rose Gardens along with the Victoria State Rose Garden, Morwell Centenary Rose Garden, International Rose Trial Garden SA, Old Parliament House Gardens in Canberra, Araluen Botanic Park in WA, and the National Rose Garden at Woolmers Estate in Tasmania along with many others.
Users of Sudden Impact for Roses consistently report the following:
An increase in the number of flowers.
An increase in the quality of individual blooms.
Continued general plant vigour and sturdy growth.
An improvement in the health of the plants, with increased resistance to fungal disease such as black spot, rust and powdery mildew, resulting in a marked reduction in the need for preventative spraying by up to two thirds.
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.
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.
