Why is this nursery different?
It is totally organic.
No chemical fertilisers or pesticides are used. We use no fungicides so any trees with problems have already been selected out. A garlic solution is sometimes sprayed to deter fungus and psyllids. Our soil is full of natural fungi called micorrhizae which assist mineral uptake by plants.
Our potting mix is a manure compost base with added organic products for slow release nutrient supply. Wild birds like wekas and blackbirds sift through the plant area removing slugs and snails. Fantails and moreporks keep moths to a manageable level, encouraged to the nursery by the planting of native trees.
Dialatree nursery is organic and GE free, for healthy, robust plants that transplant and recover well in their new homes.
