BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS

Flower gardening is a much-loved hobby, from a welcoming sight as you come home each day, creating an oasis to enjoy on weekends, or just having access your own flowers to cut and display indoors or gifting to friends. There are so many great reasons to want to grow some flowers of your own.  

Layering is key when growing beautiful blooms. Start with some feature tree or shrub varieties, and then consider underplants around with annuals and perrenials to keep blooms going year-round. There are so many planting options, you never have to be without a little floral colour in your garden, no matter the season.  

With Rocky Point products on hand, you’ve got everything you need to create a garden that can help you get compliments on your Beautiful Blooms.

Fertilising with Poultry Manure Fertiliser Pellets is a great way for an instant injection of nutrients and microbial activity to bring flowering gardens to life. Lock that goodness in with a thick layer of Lucerne Mulch, the perfect nitrogen-boosting match.  

How to get the best results for your flowering plants:

1. Pull back or rake away any existing mulch around your flowering plants.

2. Apply 150g-300g (approx. 3-6 handfuls) of Rocky Point Poultry Manure Pellets per square meter prior to planting. Water in well.

3. Cover the exposed soil and pellets with a thick layer of Rocky Point’s Lucerne Mulch, ensuring you leave a gap around the base of your plants. Wet and water in the mulch.

As a guide, a bag of Rocky Point Lucerne Mulch will cover 7m2 at 50mm thick.

FERTILISING

Soil rich in organic matter like aged compost or well-rotted manure provides plenty of nutrients consistently to the plants. It also encourages microbial activity, which promotes soil fertility and assists in water retention. Add some compost or manure to the soil when planting your flower bed and then continue to layer them on top from time to time. Fertilising with Poultry Manure should be done every 4-6 weeks.  

SUNLIGHT

Light is essential for the plant’s growth. Direct sunlight for 6+ hours a day can be a prerequisite for many plants that come to flower. However, shade-loving plants tend to reduce the number of flowers when exposed to more sun. These plants are great used as underplanting for sun-loving trees and bigger shrubs.

DEADHEADING

Most plants grow better and have more flowers if wilted and faded blooms are removed often. Whenever you see the spent flowers, pick them off, so the plant can direct its energy on forming more flowers and buds. Wilted flowers waste energy and sap. They can also attract insects and diseases.  

WATERING

Excess watering can favour the development of foliage but can also mean the absence of flowering. Similarly, the lack of water can cause the plant to drop the flower buds. The best way is to water deeply and less often, rather than short and frequently during the flowering season. The use of Lucerne Mulch will help keep your soil moisture well balanced and lasting longer.
