Soil Conditioner

For best results place 15-20cm of Daltons Premium Garden Mix on your garden and dig to a depth of approximately 30cm. This should be done annually before planting if possible. After planting apply a layer of Daltons Premium Garden Mix as a mulch.

Planter Mix

Dig a hole to twice the size of the root ball and half fill with Daltons Premium Garden Mix. Gently place plant in hole so it is at correct level and fill up with Daltons Premium Garden Mix, gently firming around the plant.

Planter Boxes and Raised Gardens

For planter boxes and raised gardens, ensure a minimum depth of 30-50cm.


Spread Daltons Premium Garden Mix 5cm deep on garden beds to help prevent weeds germinating from the soil below, as well as to retain moisture and help keep an even soil temperature.

After Care

When top dressing or additional feeding is required, use Daltons Premium Garden Mix in conjunction with Daltons Premium Fertiliser range. Refer to packaging for instructions.
