Fertilisers

Compost is the perfect medium to mix in the much needed minerals, so often lacking in our soils, to help bring our soils into balance. Minerals complexed with humus in compost will not leach like water-soluble fertilizers. Research has shown that when minerals are included with compost they were up to 10 times more efficient.
Chemical fertilisers kill many of the soil microbes needed to build healthy soils, so we prefer to use natural minerals to balance our soils.
Compost is often lower in the major plant nutrients - nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium - to be called a fertiliser, although it does contain some nutrients, there are substances in compost that make iron, zinc and other minor nutrients available to the plants.
