Regenerate Nutrient and Mineral Blend is an excellent way to amend no till beds, build new soil or recycle old soil from a single blend of carefully selected ingredients. By topdressing or amending old soil with Regenerate you are giving your soil a wide range of raw nutrients that microorganisms will slowly consume and make available to the plant when the plant needs it. It is a blend of plant-based amendments and rock minerals containing 47% organic matter. Ideal for re-amending soil beds and containers in between growing cycles, especially for people who don’t have the resources to get their soil tested. It contains a balanced profile of slow and quick release nutrients and minerals in organic form with plenty of carbon for microbial stimulation and long term soil fertility throughout the growing cycle. Also included is a quality mycorrhizal inoculant which is most effective when Regenerate is used as a topdress. This particular mycorrhizal inoculant contains 4 strains of endomycorrhizal spores which all aid in various plant processes from disease suppression to water and nutrient translocation. Mycorrhizae is an incredibly important symbiotic association that vastly increases plants ability to uptake nutrients and protect the rhizosphere from disease. It sequesters carbon and greatly reduces fertiliser needs.
Neem Meal: pest resistance, macro nutrients. Certified Organic
Kelp Meal: Growth hormones and micronutrients. Certified Organic
Malted Barley: Enzymes for increased nutrient cycling. Provides chitin for pest management via microbial activity.
Paramagnetic Basalt Rock Dust: Increases soil fertility and provides slow release trace elements
Gypsum: Certified Organic. Provides sulfur and calcium and does not affect pH. If building your own soil, add appropriate amount of calcium carbonate to correct acidic soil from the addition of sphagnum peat moss. We left out lime so your soil pH will not shift over time and become more alkaline.
Soft Rock Phosphate: Naturally sourced, un-processed rock phosphate high in trace elements, calcium and phosphorus as well as silica – a cell strengthening element.
Mycorrhizae: Contains 4 species of endomycorrhizal fungal spores. Made in Australia
REGENERATE USED SOIL per 50L:
Add 1/4 kg or .5 – 1.5 cups
Add 10-15L high quality worm castings or compost
Add 10-15L aeration amendment (7mm scoria, perlite, pumice etc)
Mix well, water until evenly moist and allow soil to cycle for at least 1 week. Plant seedlings or cuttings.
TOP DRESSING SOIL RATES:
1/4 – 1 cup per plant depending on size of container
1/2 cup per 50L of soil in container
1.5 cups per square metre raised beds
Lightly scratch into top layer of soil at end of growing cycle and again when going into bloom if needed.
For best results when top dressing with Regenerate at end of growing cycle, add a 30mm layer of worm castings on top and mulch with straw. Water lightly, evenly and frequently but not so much that water is running out from bottom of containers.
