What's the difference between compost and fertiliser?
To even a well-seasoned gardener, the difference between compost and fertiliser can sometimes be murky. Fear not – we’re here to help.
When we want to deal with waste in a sustainable way, we recycle it…right? Well, not quite.
Seeds need love too
How chitin can be the answer to your seed treatment needs
How chitin stimulates plant growth, quality, and stress tolerance
Self defence for plants - seriously!
Ahhh chitin. It’s a superstar. In part one, we chatted through how chitin from insect exoskeletons can deliver nutrients and minerals to plants. Now, its time to dive into one of the other incredible abilities of chitin - fighting off pathogens such as fungi, bacteria and nasty nematodes.
Plants ❤️ (exo)skeletons 💀
Your skeletal gardening superhero - here, we will begin a 4-part series where we do a deep dive on the magic of chitin for plants.
Does your pet have a sensitive stomach? Insect protein could be the answer
We love our pets. Maybe a little too much. We pamper them, cuddle them, and want to provide them with the best - especially when it comes to their food, and ESPECIALLY when they’re a picky eater.
The dirty secret weapon that can help us fight climate change
What if we told you that soil can make a huge impact as part of a strategy to combat the climate crisis?
Small size, big impact
It's not news that conventional meat and dairy farming can be pretty harmful to the environment. And it probably won't come as a surprise to you that right now, producing protein for people to eat, accounts for about 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions 🤯 What can we do about it?
Using agriculture to restore our planet
We hear a lot about the effect agriculture has on the environment – both in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss. But could it instead be used as a force for good in protecting our environment? Enter stage left, regenerative agriculture.
Don't look to the sky, look at the ground!
Droughts are a disaster that we Australians are far too familiar with. Scientists have suggested that the secret to drought resilience lies in the soil.
How excess nitrogen is damaging our planet, and what we can do about it
Nitrogen is incredibly important for plant growth and reproduction. But the way it’s commonly delivered to the soil – through synthetic fertilisers – can have a devastating impact on the environment.
Organic vs chemical fertilisers: what's all the fuss about?
Ah, the organic vs chemical fertiliser debate. Mention it to any farmer or serious gardener, and the reactions will likely be passionate and varied. But what’s best for your plants and the planet?
The fifteenth element on the periodic table. One of the three main macronutrients needed for plant growth and vitality. As part of the Green Revolution, we started mining phosphate rock to unlock 10X crop yields. As a result, fertilisers today are packed full of phosphorus, allowing our crops to grow strong and healthy. So what’s the problem?
