Feature Plant:

Chillies!

Red Hot & Spicy!

For all your cooking & marinade needs! Grow your own chilli plant easily from seed or seedlings. Haling from the desert & heat of Mexico and related to the capsicum family, Chillies sure pack a punch in lots of culinary dishes and are very popular! Easy to grow and maintain Chilli bushes are a staple in many home gardens and grow great in pots as well.
Chillies grow particularly well in warm climates all year round with continual harvesting. The fruit follow on from white flowers and come in a variety of shapes and sizes once matured. As they ripen they change to a rainbow of colours ranging from yellow, orange, red, brown and even purple! Just like with any other plant a regular watering routine is essential and they also enjoy a good organic fertiliser every 6-8 weeks.
Try an all purpose variety like our Katek Super Growth.

 

Top Tip: The more mature the chilli the hotter it’s flavour!

Feature Garden:

Anne Fraser, Pie Creek, Qld

A long-time garden enthusiast, Anne has created her garden with an amazing assortment of drought tolerant and sun hardy varieties of flowers, shrubs, natives, vegetables & fruit trees to suit the harsh Queensland weather.
A big fan of organic fertiliser and seaweed liquid, Anne discovered Katek Super Growth fertiliser pellets and Katek Neptune Seaweed Concentrate at a local garden expo. So pleased with the results on her garden and the health of her plants she now recommends Katek to her family and friends.

“I’m not usually one to try new things, but when I discovered Katek Fertilizers
and found that both their products, Super Growth & Neptune, were
organic I thought why not give them a go? I’m sure glad I did, I’ve been using
them religiously on everything in the garden and couldn’t be more pleased
with the results.”

“My flowers & shrubs have never looked so bright and
they keep blooming long after you’d usually expect them to die off. The
natives I have growing are no longer straggly and have millions of flowers –
season after season!”

“My vegetables and fruit trees produce more crops than ever and the crop is
so tasty and delicious. I’ll never use anything but Katek in my garden from
now on – it has never looked so good!”

  • Give your indoor plants a feed of Katek Neptune Seaweed concentrate and a little Super Booster fertiliser pellets! Don’t forget that indoor plants need feeding too!
  • Re-mulch all potted plants and trim back scraggly growth to encourage healthier, more shapely plant structures
  • Try planting a mix of wildflowers or bee & butterfly friendly shrubs in your garden, you’ll encourage more pollination & beneficial insects too!
  • Great time to get seeds planted for your autumn vegetable garden – here at Katek in South East Qld we’ll be planting seeds for silverbeet, beetroot, spinach, broccoli & cauliflower!
