Yates Premium Organic Compost

Provides gentle nutrition and encourages beneficial micro-organisms and earthworms, whilst storing moisture and improving aeration


Yates Premium Organic Compost is the basis of a good healthy soil. It provides gentle nutrition and improves soil slowly and safely. Compost encourages beneficial micro-organisms and earthworms, whilst storing moisture and improving aeration. It can be used when growing all types of garden plants (including flowers and vegetables) and is suitable for phosphorus-sensitive plants such as natives.

Yates Premium Organic Compost will bring dry, hard, water-repellent soils back to life. When applied regularly in conjunction with a fertiliser program, more nutrients will be available to the plants over a longer period.

High-nutrient-demand plants (for example vegetable, flowers, annuals, roses or citrus) will benefit enormously, while demand for watering will be significantly reduced. Your plants will require less watering and be healthier.

Lastly, adding compost reduces nematodes population and nutrient leaching. Which is especially important if you have a sloping garden or sandy soil.

    How to use

    For new garden beds or to revitalise dry, hard soil before planting:

    1. Empty one bag per square metre on to the soil surface.
    2. Dig into soil to the depth of one spade (20cm).
    3. Water in well.

    For an existing garden:

    1. Apply as a mulch to a depth of at least 5cm in spring and early autumn.
    2. If desired, cultivate lightly into surface.
    3. Around shallow rooted plants such as azaleas do not cultivate as this may result in root damage. Let the earthworms do the work.
    4. Water in well.
