Personal touches are what make a house feel like a home. Few things do this better than indoor plants, which can visually transform a space and are scientifically proven to boost physical and mental health.
Indoor gardening helps us reconnect with nature. It is living, breathing meditation, with the added reward of watching growing things flourish under your care. (And caring for them is easier than you think.)
Like us, plants require the right balance of light, water and food, and every individual plant is different. Yates’ diverse indoor plant care range is a one-stop shop for houseplants, helping you to help them grow and prosper. With three easy steps, your plants should not only survive, but thrive!
Give your indoor plants a great start with Yates Specialty Potting Mix. It has everything your plants need, including bio-stimulants for root health and a fertiliser that feeds for up to six months. Choose from: Plants & Ferns, Orchids, Cacti & Succulents, or Cuttings & Seeds, each available in handy, resealable 2.5L packs.
For ongoing care, Yates Plant Food Spikes (available in three variants) are an innovative ‘push, feed and forget’ way to deliver nutrients straight to the roots, feeding continuously for up to two months.
Fungus gnats, those tiny black insects you might see buzzing around near your plants, are the bane of many an indoor gardener. A layer of Yates Gnat Barrier works wonders to help stop the gnat life cycle.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
