Did You Know...
A lot of suburbs in Victoria have proven to have soil that is ALKALINE IN NATURE. With most of them having high alkaline soil, a balance has been sought to replace missing elements needed for better gardens, which have been introduced to old and new suburbs.
The availability of Phosphorus and Trace Elements like Iron, Manganese, Copper, Zinc and Boron needs to be increased, as alkaline soil does not produce these through its natural process.
Deficiency of Phosphorus Causes:
• Poor Root Development
• Stunted Growth
• Purplish Discoloration on Leaves
Iron Deficiencies Causes:
• Yellowing of Younger Leaves
Manganese Deficiencies Causes:
• Yellowing of Leaves especially between veins
• Growth is Stunted
Copper & Zinc Deficiencies Causes:
• Leaf Mottling
• Yellowing of Young Leaves
Boron Deficiencies Causes:
Breakdown of Internal Tissue and Corkiness especially in Apples, Beetroot and Turnips called “Brown Heart”
MUSHROOM COMPOST is very alkaline and will create deficiencies in plants. It is also very salty.
