About our products

WHY OUR PRODUCTS STAND TALL

Atlantic Fertilisers produces a range of organic and semi-organic fertiliser products for use in the home garden, as well as in the commercial/agricultural market. The products are based on composted poultry manure, which is a one of nature’s oldest and most trusted sources of minerals and nutrients, which will condition soil and improve fertility.

In essence organic fertilisers work in three ways—firstly they directly add nutrition to the soil, secondly they stimulate the micro-biology within the soil which will break down organic matter to generate further nutrition, thirdly they stimulate root growth which provides a great soil surface area upon which to draw nutrients (& moisture/water)

Hence given the ‘nature’ of how organic fertilisers work they can basically be used in any application at any time and are hence all effectively multi-purpose products.

WHAT IS IN A NAME?

The vast Atlantic Ocean teems with a rich diversity of marine life. On the South west coast of Africa, its cold-climate Benguela Current supports abundant marine organisms, fish and mammal species through its oxygen rich waters.

On the African continent itself, our fertilisers nourish the earth in a similar manner. Using the finest organic and chemical ingredients, some sourced from the ocean itself, our products are formulated to improve and sustain biological activity in the soil.

Our company’s focus is on keeping soils healthy and nutrient rich and keeping soil ecosystems in balance. Our aim is to increase sustainability and assist you in growing healthy and vibrant gardens over the long term. We achieve this by thinking more broadly about our clients’ needs, and by adding value. This fresh approach to doing business means we offer you not only the best products available, but also products tailored to your conditions.

November in the Garden

Summer's all about colour... Everywhere! The all-time favourites are in full bloom and you need more of them. The best news is the availability of modern varieties of many perennials and edibles which can be planted and enjoyed in the smallest of spaces. You can also plant future health today!

Petite, but powerful

The new-age dwarf Inca lilies are magnificent for the garden and suitable to grow in containers too, as they reach a height of only 30-35cm. They flower profusely from spring to autumn and can be found in a wide range of bright colours. These shorty's can, just like their taller family members, be picked as long-lasting cut flowers.

Growth in a nutshell
  • Good for sun or light shade.
  • Plant in well-aerated soil, enriched with compost.
  • Water and feed regularly in the summer months with Atlantic Fertilisers Flower & Fruit fertiliser.

Queen Hydrangea

Brighten up shady areas with glorious hydrangeas, which will now be available in flower. Colour in between them with impatiens, begonias and browallia.
Remember that: Hydrangeas love dappled shade, well-aerated soil and lots of water. If you want to grow them in pots, place them on the Southern side of the house for early morning sun and afternoon shade. They need to be fed monthly from August to March with Flower & Fruit fertiliser.

More smart planting...

The Pondo Waterwood (Syzygium pondoense) is a perfectly sphere-shaped shrub to add structure or formality to any garden setting, and is known as an absolute bird magnet. It is indigenous and endemic to the Northern Eastern Cape and the Southern Kwa-Zulu Natal area, where it grows along the rocky beds of streams. It is evergreen and can reach a height and diameter of 3m. The new shoots and leaves are reddish in colour but as they mature, become shiny and dark green with a leathery feel. The Pondo Waterwood will burst into copious sweetly scented white flowers in early summer. These flowers are loved by butterflies, bees and insects, followed in hot pursuit by every garden bird imaginable. In autumn, the scented flowers give way to an abundance of plum coloured fruit which means the birds will arrive once again to feast on them. The Pondo Waterwood grows in the sun but will tolerate some shade. Although this plant is very water wise, regular watering and feeding will give better results. Plant this coast-friendly plant in well-drained soil.

Recommendation: An excellent indigenous clipping plant to shape into pretty topiaries or to use as hedging for all but the coldest regions in the land!

Bedding besties for hot months

If you are looking for lovely summer colour to plant now, go for vincas (Catharanthus roseus). Intensive breeding has resulted in compact, bushy plants with a long flowering period, including a colour range of pinks, reds, white, apricot, and even include the popular varieties; ‘Jams ’n Jellies’ with nearly black flowers and ‘American Pie Mix’ with an interesting mix of white and berry coloured blooms.


Vincas need:
  • full sun all day long
  • very well-drained soil
  • correct spacing – plant them 20cm apart to allow good air circulation (this will prevent stem or root rot)
  • medium to low watering once established

Good colour companions for vincas are salvias, marigolds, verbenas, angelonias and zinnias.

Rosecare for November

Recharge your roses after their October flower flush with Atlantic Ferttilisers Flower & Fruit fertiliser. Check the mulch around plants and renew it if necessary to keep the roots cool and moist. Water at least three times per week and spray fortnightly with a combination rose spray to deter pests.

Superfood tree

The Moringa tree (Moringa oleifera) also known as the Miracle Tree, Drumstick Tree, Horseradish Tree or Radish Tree, is a very fast growing deciduous tree that is packed with an almost unbelievable number of health benefits. Every part of this tree from the leaves, flowers, seed pods, seeds, roots and bark is edible. Moringa has been used for medicinal purposes for at least the last 4000 years.
The leaves have the following benefits:

  • 7 times more Vitamin C than that of oranges
  • 4 times more Vitamin A than that of carrots
  • 4 times more Calcium than that of milk
  • 3 times more Potassium than that of bananas
  • 2 times more Protein than that of yoghurt

These trees are extremely drought resistant and suitable for very hot tropical and subtropical climates. Enquire at your local nursery for stock and more information.

Find good health in fennel

Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) hails from the Mediterranean regions where it grows naturally along the coast and dry rocky outcrops - a very attractive herbal plant which needs little else than lots of sun and ordinary garden soil. A cousin, known as bronze fennel (Foeniculum vulgare ‘Rubrum Purpureum’), is an even prettier foliage plant, often grown amongst other perennials in a flower border. Apart from its natural good looks, fennel is prized for its culinary and medicinal values. The ferny leaves and copious seed produced in umbels of dainty yellow flowerheads are very aromatic, lending a subtle anise flavour to fish, chicken and veggie dishes, and they can also be used to bathe sore eyes as well as to soothe indigestion and nausea. While fennel flowers are irresistible to butterflies, they can also be used to attract aphids away from other susceptible plants. In the flower garden they are perfect companions for sun-lovers like dahlias, salvias, zinnias, cosmos and gauras.

Renovate lawn in the shade

It is not uncommon for 25-40% of lawn to be covered in partial or deep shade - not ideal situations for sun-loving lawns! If shade is extreme, try to eliminate some of it by trimming low and overhanging branches of trees, or replace the lawn with shade-loving groundcovers. The other option is to use grass mixtures/blends which are capable of withstanding shade by over-seeding the existing lawn with it. Your nursery will be able to advise you on the correct product.

Prune a bit
  • Fynbos like buchus, leucospermums, ericas, and proteas can be pruned after flowering. Also prune confetti bushes quite hard.
  • Stop lavenders like Lavandula stoechas from becoming woody by pruning them just after a flowering spell - this will keep them healthy and around for longer. Prune about two thirds of the growth away, and never into old wood.

Inland gardening

(Gauteng, Free State, North West, Mpumalanga and Limpopo)

  • Plant much more... Lavenders, cupheas, gauras, and angelonias and you simply cannot forget about all the agapanthus hybrids which will be in flower and in stock now.
  • Eat your flowers - nothing makes a summer salad look prettier than garden flowers scattered over it - it’s high fashion too! So, add some begonias, daylilies, hibiscus, borage and pineapple sage to your garden for culinary use.
  • You can feed yourself royally by gardening in containers only. Plant blueberries, strawberries and Cape gooseberries in large pots. Look out at local garden centres for 'The Patio' range of veggies like a Roma container tomato, a mini-butternut called Butternut 'Honeynut', and the golden Zucchini 'Easy Pick'.
  • Going to the coast soon? Weed all beds, feed with Bio Ganic All Purpose fertiliser, water well afterwards and mulch – this will keep your garden safe until your return. Check that your irrigation system is working perfectly and covering all areas, provided that your water restrictions allow for this.
  • Acid loving hydrangeas, gardenias and fuchsias are at their best now. If not, feed the plants with an acidic foliar feed and mulch around the base with bark chips.
  • You are reminded (with gardeners everywhere!) to keep on planting for birds and butterflies. Wild Dagga, September Bush, Pentas lanceolata and the wonderful Buddleja ‘Buzz’ range of dwarf butterfly bushes are highly recommended to make your garden come alive!
  • Check for whitefly – they love the heat of summer and when spraying, take care to reach all parts of the plant as the little flies sit underneath the leaves
  • If potted plants are sagging, it could be a drainage problem. Lift them onto ‘pot feet’ or old bricks to ensure that drainage holes remain functional. Water plants that are under the roof overhang of buildings. While it is wet outside, they can die from drought!
  • Woe on the beetles – It is not difficult to miss the yellow and black beetles which will devour flowers with ease in a day. These pests are either the CMR beetle or the fruit chafer (bigger and nastier!). Get advice from your local garden centre for the perfect remedy.

Coastal gardening

(Western Cape, Northern Cape, Eastern Cape, and KwaZulu-Natal)

  • It makes sense to grow your own sweet peppers, as ripe sweet peppers are quite expensive to buy - besides, homegrown is best! If you look after the plants well (you can sow them, or plant seedlings) they will keep on producing fruit for up to six months. They can also be grown in pots, which should be kept in morning sun and afternoon shade.
  • Did you know that snails don't like parsley? That is why it is a good reason to plant miles of parsley between, or as a border around lettuces, green beans or Swiss chard to protect them.
  • If you have planted some brinjals (eggplants) in the veggie patch or into pots (they do well in pots!), add the following companion plants to complement their taste: oregano, marjoram, thyme, sweet basil and rosemary.
  • Keep water around your roots. Use water-retention granules in flowerbeds when planting young summer annuals such as salvias, portulacas, vincas and celosias. Water-retentive products break the water-resistant layer of certain soils, draw the water deeper into the plant's root zones and keep the soil moist for longer.
  • If you do not see a dark emerald green lawn before you, fertilise now with Atlantic Fertilisers Bio Ganic Lawns and water and mow regularly.
  • Red bedding plants are just the ticket to vamp up your garden before the holiday hordes arrive. You can use them as an economical option for patio and even indoor table decoration during festive parties too. After filling bare spots in the garden with this eye-catching colour, also plant individual seedlings into small pots to grow on. Examples are begonias, dianthus, New Guinea Impatiens, red salvias, vincas and petunias.
  • Follow up spraying of fruit trees only if the fruit are still small and green, to stop damage by fruit flies.
  • Watch out for powdery mildew on the pumpkin family and put out bait for pumpkin fly.
 
 

Healthy, flavourful fennel

Spicy and sweet, fennel is a cook’s dream and a delight for gardeners who love its striking foliage and flowers. As a herb, fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is a citizen of the world, like so many other Mediterranean exports. It still grows wild along the coast and on dry sunny Mediterranean slopes, but from there it has spread throughout the world because it has such simple requirements: plenty of sun and ordinary garden soil.

Bronze fennel (Foeniculum vulgare ‘Rubrum Purpureum’), in particular, is a beautiful foliage plant (with all the herbal uses) that is more often found in flower gardens, especially mixed borders where it is used as a tall, striking foliage plant. In addition to its good looks, fennel has many culinary and healing properties. The leaves and seeds are strongly aromatic, adding a subtle aniseed flavour to fish, poultry and vegetable, as well as spicy Indian and Italian dishes. The bulb of Florence fennel (Foeniculum vulgare var. dulce) has a milder taste.

The seeds and leaves of fennel are indispensable as part of the home pharmacy, soothing red eyes, alleviating indigestion and colic in infants, reducing nausea, acting as a mild laxative and even helping new mothers to produce milk.

Growing fennel

Ordinary fennel and bronze fennel grow up to 2m high, with fine, feathery green or bronze leaves and umbels of yellow flowers the size of dinner plates. Their preference for sandy soil suits coastal gardens, but they grow easily just about everywhere. Plants in heavier soil may die in very wet or cold winters. Both plants are perennials and can be cut back when the leaves start to fade. They will shoot up again. Florence fennel requires richer soil, which should still drain well, and more regular watering to ensure swollen bulbs, which are shaved into salads or roasted. For this reason it is usually grown as an annual.

Good company

Butterflies and beneficial predator insects like hoverflies and wasps love fennel’s yellow flowers. The flowers also act as a trap, attracting aphids away from other plants. In flower gardens, fennel thrives in the company of other sun-loving annuals and perennials like salvia, dahlias, zinnias, cosmos and gaura. Be careful, however, of planting fennel with beans, green peppers or tomatoes, as well as dill, caraway and coriander. Because dill and fennel are so botanically close, they tend to cross-pollinate and the result is not very satisfactory.

East meets West

Fennel is not only indigenous to the Mediterranean, but also to Asia, where the seeds, which have a stronger flavour than the leaves, are used as a spice. Chinese five-spice powder includes fennel, and fennel seeds are an important spice in Kashmiri and Gujarat cooking. Roasted fennel seeds are eaten after a meal, or made into an aromatic tea for aiding digestion and as a breath freshener. Tip: To make tea from the seed, crush it lightly to break the hard outer casing. Use ½-1 teaspoon of fennel seed to one cup of water. Pour just-boiled water over the seed, infuse for 15 minutes, then strain and drink it. Add a slice of orange for extra flavour.

Harvesting seeds

At least one plant should be allowed to go to seed so that the umbel ripens and turns brown. When this has happened, cut off the flower head, dry it in a cool place and after 2-3 weeks shake the dried seeds into a brown paper packet or a container with a lid.

Good news for dieters

A tea made from crushed fennel seeds or leaves acts as a mild appetite suppressant as well as a diuretic. Both help to lose weight naturally. A quick and easy tea can be made by placing 3-4 teaspoons of fresh leaves in a teapot and adding boiling water. Let it steep for five minutes and pour a refreshing, delicious cup of tea. Drink three times a day before meals. After five days, take a break for a day or two, then carry on.

Try this fennel recipe

There is nothing worse than soggy, overcooked cabbage, but this spicy cabbage stir-fry with fennel will convert anyone! Heat olive oil in a frying pan and fry 1 cup of chopped cashew nuts for 30 seconds or until they start to brown. Add 350g each of chopped cabbage and spinach/Swiss chard, and stir-fry for 3-5 minutes. Add chopped fennel leaves towards the end of cooking and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly crushed fennel seeds could be used instead of the fresh leaves.

Five other ways with fennel

  • Use the leaves in salads and as a garnish or to flavour salad dressing.
  • Instead of sage, use fennel in stuffing for chicken.
  • Add roasted fennel seeds to stir-fries and savoury fried rice
  • Braai fish on a bed of dried fennel stalks
  • Mix shavings of raw Florence fennel bulb with avocado and other salad greens. Peeled orange segments complement the taste.

Eyes right

Did you know that ancient Romans regarded fennel as the herb of sight? Today, a cold fennel tea can be used as an external eyewash, or compress for red eyes, or for the inflammation of the eyelids. Also use the tea as a refreshing facial rinse to tone the skin and to help to reduce wrinkles. For deep cleansing, add fennel to facial steams and baths.

Roasted Fennel Recipe

Sprinkle some olive oil over half-cut fennel bulbs, season with salt and pepper and bake in a hot oven at 200°C for about 15 minutes, until cooked through. Makes a delicious side dish to roasts.

 
 
 
 

DIY: Jungalow Inspired Kokedamas

Green is the new black, and it’s taking over interiors everywhere! Greenery adds lovely pops of vibrancy and brightness to any room, it’s no wonder it is one of the biggest trends at the moment.

What better way to work this trend into your indoor space than with a quirky string garden made up of Japanese inspired moss balls?

Materials you will need to create these cool kokedamas:

  • Small plants (a fern is a good choice)
  • Twine
  • Scissors
  • Sphagnum moss
  • Potting mix
  • Riversand
  • Water
  • Watering can
  • Old baking tray
  • A few old bowls

How the activity works:

  1. Water the plant a day before your DIY activity, so it makes it easy to work with on the day.
  2. Add a bit of riversand to the potting mix. Then, it’s time to start adding water to the mixture slowly to form a consistency. You will use this to form a ball.
  3. Place the sphagnum moss flat in the baking tray and water until nice and damp.
  4. Remove the plant from its pot and clean the soil from the roots.
  5. Position the plant in the potting mix bowl, wrapping the plant up in the soil.
  6. Once that is done, place the plant in the centre of the sphagnum moss, wrapping the ball up nicely with the moss.
  7. Wrap twine around the moss, so that the soil and moss are both kept firmly in place. And it’s done!
  8. Hang this peppy planter up inside your home, or add a touch of personality to your garden by hanging it from a tree.

Caring for your Kokedama:

If the ball feels light, it likely needs water. Soak this cool plant in a bowl of water for about 10 minutes and then place into a colander to drain. When water no longer drips from the ball, it’s ready to hang up again. Let this plant grow in a semi-shady spot, inside. To keep it looking crisp and a beautiful shade of green, fertilise monthly while watering.





Fertilise all year round

Our products are suitable to use in any season

IDEAL FOR ALL SEASONS

Traditionally, and contrary to the practices of professional growers, home gardeners only applied fertilisers to their lawns and gardens in autumn and spring. No applications were made in winter or summer. This was primarily because the nutrients in chemical fertilisers would "leach" in winter and "burn" in summer providing very little if any positive impact on the garden.

Atlantic Fertilisers range of organic fertilisers was designed and developed by experts to provide consistent and sustained growth of your garden plants and lawns throughout the year.

Remember that a happy, healthy, well nourished plant will look great, perform better and be less likely to be plagued by pests and disease.

Summer

The most stressful season for plants and lawns. Summer feeding will result in healthy root and plant growth, extended flowering and reduced inclination to pests and disease.

Autumn

Many plants begin to lose their leaves at this time. Feeding in autumn will allow plants to store nutrients to help them survive through winter.

Winter

KUlants may appear dormant above the surface, but feeding in winter allows root systems to take up nutrients from the soil, in preparation for the flush of new growth in spring.

Spring

As the temperature rises our plants and lawns burst into life. Feeding in spring encourages this burst of energy and provides sustained plant growth.
