I also wanted to say a huge THANKYOU to Dave, from davesgardenproducts.co.nz . He responded generously to a post I put on here of my stunted sad tomatoes. Dave sent me a 500ml bottle of Fish/seaweed and the same of liquid compost to use to perk them up.

And perk up they did! I even had a rock melon this year (we live in an alpine village) without having a glasshouse to grow anything in.

I am truly impressed by Dave’s products. He also sells his own compost too, which is super rich in goodness. If you are thinking of purchasing something to boost your garden with, I would seriously recommend using these products.

Thank you very very much David. I’ll be ordering more come spring

Go for gold I’m picking the rose is over twenty years old at least and I was about to dig it out as it was basically a dead stalk I thought I would try humates around the base with some foliage spray and the turnaround has been amazing!

“I first read about “Humate” in the Northern Advocate newspaper. The information in the article was interesting and gave me the idea that perhaps Humate could be used on our bowling green to some advantage especially as it is a natural fertilizer (ancient compost) I liked the idea of using such a product.

Our bowling green has only about 40mm of topsoil over yellow Northland clay which makes keeping a good cover of Starweed difficult. (Mixed with the Starweed is some cotula maniototo and dioca)

With permission from the committee we initially purchased a tonne of Humate and applied that, mixed with soil, when the April renovation of the green was carried out.
After a month or so we could see that the winter growth was ahead of time and the whole green was looking better than normal. The strong growth continued throughout the playing season with good cover over the whole green.

The green keeper was pleased and now continues to apply Humate at renovation times. He says that using Humate has been the main reason for the green being one of the best greens in the Northland area. This is borne out by the very favourable comments from visiting bowlers.”

“I bought some of Dave’s liquid garden fertilisers and compost 8 weeks ago and within that time the difference that I have noticed on the crops that I applied them on is absolutely marvelous! I highly recommend to anyone that wants to grow good home grown veges to buy some of Dave’s retail garden range of products – I certainly will be buying some more!”

“Dave gave me a bottle of his liquid garden fertiliser to use on my cucumbers and tomatoes last season and I have never experienced such fantastic results – ever! Quite amazing with both crops beautiful tasting and rich in flavour. My neighbours are being kept in supply too. Thanks so much.”
