Complete Organic Fertiliser (COF)

What's the point of growing vegetables if they aren't nutritious? Adding Complete Organic Fertiliser (COF) to your soil means you grow plants that don't just look good but are good for you. Compost alone isn't enough to make your vegetable nutritious especially if you use the same patch year after year.

COF  gives you nutrient dense food that tastes better, is better for you and grows with fewer problems by adding a variety of essential nutrients to the soil. It is perfect for those who have already taken care of soil conditioning  via large inputs of organic matter such as manures and compost. 

Developed by Steve Solomon, author of Growing Vegetables South of Australia and The Intelligent Gardener. We use Steve's updated his recipe outlined in the Intelligent Gardener". One 7 litre bag is enough for 10 square metres of vegetable garden for one crop cycle. At $25 per 7 litre bag this is money well spent.
