5hit Sheep Pellets
5hit Sheep Pellets is a natural organic fertiliser created from sheep manure with added calcium.
A great fertiliser for veges in your home garden.
It contains five essential nutrients for healthy plants including Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sulphur and Calcium. 5hit Sheep Pellets will increase soil water retention properties, boost soil vitality, increase organic matter content, and promote earthworm activity. 5hit Sheep Pellets provides both slow and long-term release of nutrients for rapid response and nutrient longevity. Added calcium helps to increase the decay of organic matter such as leaves to produce a healthy carbon rich soil. ***WEED FREE***
Product is available in 12 kg and 25 kg bags.
Directions for use:
- Soil Bed Preparation:
Apply 5-6 cups (1 kg) of 5hit per square metre as bed preparation for annuals (eg. vegetables and flowers) and fork to a depth of 200 mm. Apply 2-3 cups (0.5 kg) to each planting hole for perennials (eg. shrubs and trees) and mix thoroughly with the soil.
Potatoes love 5hit - the calcium increases resistance to disease, grows a better plant, and produces a thicker and healthier potato skin. Dig 5hit liberally into the potato patch prior to planting.
- Established Gardens:
Apply a liberal scattering (5-6 cups or 1 kg) to 5hit around existing vegetation (vegetables, flowers, shrubs and trees) and water in well. Dependant on climate conditions and soil types, reapply every 3-6 months. Higher application around existing plants will produce a good mulch that will help retain moisture.
Apply 5-12 cups (1-2 kg) of 5hit per square metre to each subsequent 100 mm layer of organic matter added to the compost pile. The calcium boost of 5hit will reduce the time required for composting.
