Soil Delivery Map, Perth, WA

Growing your own healthy vegetables, fruit & herbs is fabulous and a great deal of fun!

But it is also an investment in your ongoing health and wellbeing. Our soil mixes, made on site, are perfect for organically growing your own food.  We are so confident in our soil mixes, we offer a guarantee on them!  (See FAQ's for details.)

Trace Elements

We include in our mixes of a broad range of trace elements, such as selenium, cobalt, iron and others naturally deficient in W.A. soils (compost or manure alone would not necessarily include these). Ensuring you use a quality soil mix means healthy plant growth, but it also means essential minerals and nutrients accumulate in the vegetables which you get to eat!

Complete growing mediums, our soils are ready to go!

The soil mixes we make are complete growing mediums, they require no extra nutrients to be added for optimal growth. For the best results we recommend thoroughly soaking the soil before planting.

Organic & no harmful residues Our Vegetable Mix, Vegetable Concentrate, Seed Raising and Potting Mixes are certified organic by NASAA.  All other products are made with base ingredients that are allowable organic inputs.

Some suppliers will claim their soils are 'organic'.  For your total assurance, ask them for details - which of their soils are fully Certified Organic, who they are certified with, and their certification number.  Truly Certified products will carry a logo and a number, like ours.

Water holding minerals

Already added to our soil mixes are our Sand Remedy natural water holding minerals. As these minerals hold water they also hold nutrients, reducing leaching of theses nutrients into the wider environment. We would still recommend mulching in the warmer months.

Beneficial microbes to promote healthy soil biology
Our soil mixes contain beneficial microbes, plus activators, and a range of food sources for them, to encourage healthy, living soil.  Microbes are the workers in the soil, making nutrients and minerals available for plants, ensuring healthier and stronger plant growth.
On-going product development
We are committed to on-going testing and development of our soils, to ensure we keep delivering to you a quality, value for money product that helps YOU grow a better garden.   

Our soil mixes are ready to plant into, perfect for raised garden beds. Whilst a rich mix and not overly sandy, it does contain a coarse quartz sand to help with drainage and aeration. (Quartz sand is not yellow sand or black, gutless 'Bassendean' sand. It has a mixture of particle sizes and good water holding ability.)

Please note some of our soil mixes contain RECYCLED product - compost and/or mulch products made from recycled, aged and composted council green waste.  Unfortunately because waste isn't always separated as well as it should be, sometimes small bits of inert waste (eg. wire, plastic and occasionally glass) can slip through the manufacturing process and be found in our end product.  We do our best to eliminate any contaminants during our mixing procedure.  Should you feel this is an issue for you, please contact us to discuss.  Please be assured these inert materials do not affect the soil's performance.

Using recycled product (which passes organic and other compost quality standards) means that waste is saved from landfill and is an environmentally sound practice.

Our soils are available in bulk (delivery or pick up) and most are available bagged (either pick up or order via our online shop). 

* If requesting a product to be bagged as a special order (ie. a product we do not normally carry in bags); minimum order quantities may apply.  Please allow time for production.  Please contact us for further information.
