Nitrate of Chalk Quick Acting Garden Fertiliser 27-0-0
Our Nitrate of Chalk is a great choice if you are looking to give your garden an early boost before the growing season begins. If you are looking to grow broad-leaved grasses such as Rye and Meadow grasses, our Nitrate of Chalk can be used to neutralise the soil to a pH of 6.5 – 7; perfect for them to grow.
Nitrate of Chalk is also perfect for growing brassicas such as kale and cabbage, beets or garlic. Using Nitrate of Chalk is the ideal way to increase the soil pH for leafy vegetables up to 7 – 7.5 and will allow them to grow at their best.
As Nitrate of Chalk contains a small amount of lime it is also a good way to reduce soil acidity, which will increase the overall soil fertility, especially for plants that are Calcicoles (lime-loving). Such plants include Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts and most other Brassicas.
