Guide to Gardening



Autumn is the new spring and a brilliant time to get growing in the back yard and prepare soil with a fertiliser like Yates® Dynamic Lifter® Organic Plant Food to create a strong foundation for a healthy and beautiful garden.

Now is ideal to plant delicious herbs and vegies, as well as beautiful flowers and shrubs that love the cooler weather and get a second wind putting on a fresh flush of leaves and bloom.

Soil is still warm enough for root growth, so if plants have enough nutrients from a fertiliser and water they will thrive this season.
