plant runner | bio pellets
A low maintenance approach to plant care, this is a fertiliser for people who forget to fertilise (guilty).
The clever guys at Plant Runner looked to the oceans to create this natural product packed with all the perks of three of the most beneficial seaweed varieties, paired with nutrient rich Frass.
Plant Runner's Bio Pellets are packed with nutrients that slowly release into soil to keep plants happy and healthy. But why stop there? These little pellets punch well above their weight by:
- Providing plants with a complete feed
- Increasing water retention
- Helping plants bounce back from a rough patch
- Encouraging new growth or flowering
- Nourishing soil microbes doing important work
- Helping plants defend against pests and pathogens with chitin to activate their natural defences
And....in case you were wondering? Yup, it's a natural, organic product.
The pellets are created by using a combination of three Australian Certified Organic (ACO) Kelps and sustainable, carbon-negative Frass.
Yelp about Kelp
Kelp is known for its benefits in improving soil conditions as well as enhancing growth and flowering. It is a fantastic anti-stress product, so is great to use when transplanting. Our Bio Pellets use a combination of three types of Kelp each with their own unique benefits when it comes to supporting healthy plants.
Laminaria - can assist with recovery of previous viruses
Sargassum - full of alginic acid which boosts water retention
Ascophyllum nodosum - rich in cyctokinins (hormones that promotecell division, or cytokinesis, in plant roots and shoots). It also features the highest mineral content of any kelp.
Yass to Frass
Plant Runner have waxed lyrical about Frass before. It is an all-natural organic product full of amino acids, macronutrients, microbes and chitin.
Pellets break down into the soil over a period of weeks, depending on moisture and heat. As they break down they slowly release the nutrients, acids and hormones from the seaweed and frass, making sure your plants have a consistent supply of the good stuff and leaving them want for nothing.
Safety: Not for human consumption. Avoid breathing in dust or mists, wear gloves and keep moist when handling. Wash hands after use
