Zoo Gro Soil Conditioner
Elephants, Giraffes, Pygmy Hippos and more of the wonderful wildlife at Melbourne Zoo play a major role in producing Zoo Gro Soil Conditioner! Prunings and other garden waste, bedding straw from the animals’ night dens, and compostable food packaging from onsite food outlets are added in, and it’s all composted on site in the state-of-the-art Hot Rot processor. This high quality soil improver has been properly composted to kill off any weeds and seeds, and it will help improve water and nutrient retention. HotRot rescues 2 tonnes of organic material a day going to landfill, helping Zoos Victoria to be the world’s first carbon neutral zoological organisation.
Locally sourced, composted material that re-purposes green waste that otherwise would end up in landfill. Our Compost contains composted plant matter that is rich in nutrients and helps improve impoverished soils, as well as helping to retain moisture. Our organic compost is made to Australian Standards AS 4454 at a temperature that kills any weed seeds and diseases. The combination of smaller and larger timber pieces provide ongoing carbon to feed and provide a substrate for the beneficial microbes in the soil that help to keep your plants healthy.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Recycled materials are used in this product and it may contain occasional rubbish and other inorganic material.

Certified Organic Cow Manure
An excellent addition to all gardens. Cow Manure works as a soil conditioner, opening up the soil and adding humus. It supplies major fertiliser elements and will not raise your pH as much as Mushroom Compost does.
Please note that the feedlot where our cow manure is sourced is involved in the live export industry.
80% straw, wood shavings, horse and fowl manure, 10% gypsum, 10% peat and limestone
