Customers are advised to seek professional advice for specific application rates suitable for their soil type.

Typical application rates for vineyards, orchards, berries and vegetables are around 10 tonne of Dulverton Organics Compost per hectare (this is supported by independent trials).

For pasture, typical application rates range between 1 and 3 tonne per hectare. Customers using Dulverton Organics Compost at this rate have reported a significant reduction or elimination of other fertiliser inputs, resulting in a net decrease in fertiliser costs.

View the Dulverton Organic Compost Application Rates Flyer.

Top dressing is commonly used by customers applying Dulverton Organic Compost to existing garden beds and fruit trees.

Top dress 5 – 10mm of Dulverton Organics Compost in late September or as the weather begins to warm. Re-apply Dulverton Organic Compost in December and as a final enhancement the following Spring.

It’s recommended that cut grass be allowed to mulch back into the lawn and that regular watering is maintained.

Due to our compost being very rich in nutrients we recommend that the compost be mixed with existing soil prior to planting. Mix 1 part Dulverton Organics Compost with 2-3 parts potting mix or garden soil.
