Why is this nursery different?
It is totally organic.
No chemical fertilisers or pesticides are used. We use no fungicides so any trees with problems have already been selected out. A garlic solution is sometimes sprayed to deter caterpillars and psyllids. A lot of hand weeding and manual pest control (squishing) is done. Our soil is full of natural fungi called micorrhizae which assist mineral uptake by plants.
Our potting mix is a manure compost base with added organic products including sheep manure and dolomite for slow release nutrient supply. Wild birds like wekas and blackbirds sift through the plant area removing slugs and snails. Fantails and moreporks keep moths to a manageable level, encouraged to the nursery by the planting of native trees. So our main pest control workforce is made up of birds.
Dialatree nursery is organic and GE free, for healthy, robust plants that transplant and recover well in their new homes. We offer free planting advice for your trees to help them grow the best they can. We have thirty years experience in packing and couriering live trees alive and well.
