How to use Bioboost®?

  • Established Lawns

          Ideal for established lawns, just fertilise three times per year in spring, summer and autumn at 5kg per 100m2 – there’s no need to water it in.

  • New lawns
    For seed bed or ready lawn mix Bioboost® into the top 50mm of soil at 13kg per 100m2 before seeding or laying the turf. After the third mowing apply 7kg per 100m2 and you’ll have great looking lawn.

  • Roses
    In late winter or early spring apply 100g per rose, then repeat four to six weeks later for healthy plants.


  • Annuals
    In spring apply 1.3kg per 10m2 to your annuals, then in summer apply 800g per 10m2 to promote healthy growth.


  • Perennials
    In spring and summer apply 2kg per 10m2 to maintain great looking and long lasting growth.


  • Trees and shrubs
    Bioboost® is great for fruit trees as it encourages good strong growth without interfering with flowering and fruiting. Just apply 150g - 200g within the feeder root zone (depending on the size and nutrient requirements of the plant) and work into the top 20 - 30mm of the surface zone.


  • For ground work or bed preparation incorporate Bioboost® to a depth of 10cm at 250g - 300g per m2. Potassium, calcium and magnesium should be added where soil levels of these nutrients are low.
  • Vegetable gardens
    Perfect for vegetable gardens, prior to planting work 200g of Bioboost® per m2 into the top 50- 100mm of soil. Then side dress with a supplementary NPK fertiliser two to three weeks later for a great vege crop.

How do I store Bioboost®?

Store in a closed container (or bag) in a dry place to avoid Bioboost® decomposing and becoming smelly.


  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Observe good hygiene practises and wash hands after use.
  • Minimise dust generation when handling and avoid inhaling the dust (wear a dust mask if necessary).
  • Keep storage areas free of dust and remove any potential sources of ignition.
