Dynamic Lifter in garden bed
If you want to grow an abundance of edible plants, the secret is in the soil. For a thriving garden, look to Yates.

Homegrown hero

Whether you’re interested in growing fresh kale from balcony planters, pick-your-own coriander from a window box or organic ingredients from garden beds, the foundation of delicious homegrown vegies, herbs and fruit is rich, nourishing soil and potting mix. And this is the season to get it sorted. With the harsh heat of summer over but soil still holding onto its warmth, autumn is the perfect time to establish a thriving garden.

Rewarding routines

Soil care might be crucial, but it isn’t complicated. The Yates range covers all needs with no-fuss, proven products tailored to vegies, herbs and fruit, whether in pots or garden beds, indoors or out. Simply follow a three-step routine:

1. Pot

Start with Yates Potting Mix with Dynamic Lifter, a general-purpose mix for most indoor and outdoor plants, enhanced with organic fertiliser and trace elements for boosted plant performance.

2. Plant

Yates Dynamic Lifter Organic Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser suits all plants and comes in easy-to-apply pellet or liquid concentrate form. (The liquid’s dual-action formula feeds through both leaves and roots for faster results.) It maximises your harvest with slow-release nutrients, and improves the soil’s structure and moisture retention, encouraging microorganisms and earthworms. Use the concentrate until plants are established; after six weeks, use the pellets for a top-up feed.

3. Feed

Yates Thrive Natural Pelletised Plant Food creates an environment akin to an all-day cafe for your plants, supercharging them with sustenance and fast-acting fertilisers. Choose between Citrus & Fruit and Vegie & Herb versions, depending on what you’re growing. Then, sit back and start planning what you’re going to cook with your feast of produce. There’s nothing like the taste of homegrown!

Keep in mind:

Store products out of the reach of children and pets, and always follow the product's instructions. After applying fertiliser to edible plants, delay harvesting for a few days and rinse well before cooking and eating. 

Some products are not available at all Bunnings stores, but may be ordered.
