Black Magic Vegie Soil

Composition

  • Black Magic Vegie Soil is a complete garden soil for your vegetables containing composted organics, mineral sand and ash. Roughly a third of our Black Magic Vegie Soil consists of small bits of organic matter, weathered rock that has gradually been broken down by the forces of wind, rain, freezing and thawing. 

    Organic matter is the partially decomposed remains of soil organisms and plant life including lichens and mosses, grasses and leaves, trees, and all other kinds of vegetative matter.

    Organic matter is absolutely essential. It binds together soil particles into porous crumbs or granules which allow air and water to move through the soil. Organic matter also retains moisture (humus holds up to 90 percent of its weight in water), and is able to absorb and store nutrients. Most importantly, organic matter is food for micro-organisms. The hidden "magic" in a healthy soil is the organisms—small animals, worms, insects and microbes—that flourish when the other soil elements are in balance.

OUR TOPDRESSING

Our Topdressing isn't topsoil, it's an organic recipe containing 45% specially formulated high nutrient organic compost and river sand. The organic mix adds nitrogen and calcium stimulating root growth and lush green foliage. The sand allows you to level your lawn while providing drainage.

In 14 days with daily watering your lawn will be lush green and your neighbours will be green with envy.

SPREADING

APPLICATION IS EASY simply rake it through your lawn until the tips or your grass show through. 1m3 treats about 80-100m2 (10m x 10m).

CAUTION
Our Topdressing contains chicken manure. If you don't water your lawn daily for the first couple of weeks it can burn your lawn.
Our topdressing acts like a fertilizer so if you've got weeds in your lawn it will make them grow faster too. Spray weeds before topdressing.
