A Great Product 'Rocky Point'
We have been using Rocky Point ‘Active 8’ for some time and love this product.
It has done wonders to our vegetable garden, so much so that our Hippeastrum and Day Lily gardens have also benefited from a layer of this with great results.
The biggest result was with our Caladium garden, I have never seen bigger flowers than this year.
‘Active 8’ has lots of goodies in the bag including, cow manure, blood and bone, trace elements, zeolite, seaweed, gypsum, compost, fish meal and iron.
You can actually just open the bag and plant straight into the mix if that’s what you want to do, we mix it into our existing soil.
It is not dear, Capalaba Produce sell four 30 litre bags for only $20 which is reasonable.
All in all a great product which works.
We were using a bulk potting mix from a landscaping yard but they got lazy and took things out of the mix, so that was their loss.
We then started to purchase a well-known brand of bagged potting mix but found it to be too fine and very ‘saw dusty’.
We then tried a bag of Rocky Point Premium potting mix and instantly liked it, a bit coarser than the other but that’s good as it assists drainage. It’s all we use now.
The potting mix has nine month long life fertilizer, wetting agents, coco fibre/chip, fish and seaweed, compost and trace elements.
Judging by how the plants that Judy has potted with this mix are going we intend to keep purchasing this product.
I have not received any favours from Rocky Point for this review, just like the product and it’s local.
