Bush Tucker is a complete, organic based boosted fertiliser, specifically developed to meet the specialised needs of all Australian native plants.
    Bush Tucker was developed by Neutrog in consultation with native plant expert Angus Stewart and soil scientist, Simon Leake. As with all Neutrog products the Bush Tucker formula was developed over a number of years and widely trialled by numerous expert native plant growers prior to release.

    Utilising a unique process, trace elements have been added to lock up Phosphorus, making Bush Tucker ideal for even the most phosphorus sensitive plants such as Grevilleas, Banksias and Proteas.

  • Ideal for even the most phosphorus sensitive plants
  • Enhances growth both above and below the ground
  • Pelletised - easy to use
  • How it works

    Bush Tucker not only directly supplies a wide range of essential nutrients, but more importantly provides a catalyst (through the introduction of beneficial bacteria/ microbes) for stimulating the natural processes that occur in the soil – unlocking further nutrients and enhancing root growth. Greater root growth provides a greater soil surface area from which your plants can draw nutrients and moisture.

    How to use

    Apply Bush Tucker evenly to pre-soaked soil around the drip line of the plant and water again well.

    Keep fertiliser at least 20cm away from the base of plant and avoid contact with foliage or flowers. Apply after signs of new season growth and thereafter every 12 weeks, or as required, throughout the growing season.
