NGP is about showing you how to garden for real vitality.
The NGP programme builds an enlivened soil that creates humus soils within 3-4 months, holds onto moisture, delivers nutrients to plants, boosts their immunity and keeps them vibrant. This is then sustained by following a simple NGP maintenance programme which further builds the soil to increase its water holding capacity by up to 50% improved retention capacity. As the earths soil holds more moisture than all the rivers and dams on earth it is definitely worth pursuing given our dwindling water resources.
To do this NGP has honoured our 4-PETAL PRINCIPLE as its foundation; life, nourish, immunity and energy.
LIFE decomposes organic content, releases nutrients and protects plants, NOURISHMENT is achieved by ensuring all nutrients become available for assimilation, high IMMUNITY ensures plants are able to protect themselves with natural chemicals against pests and disease, and vibrant ENERGY is a precursor to ongoing health and strong yields.
This 4-petal principle is put into effect using the NGP 3-STEP PROGRAMME; Supercharge, Boost and Maintain.
SUPERCHARGE is an annual soil building exercise done in May, BOOST is two lighter replenishments of the same done every January and September + drenched Mycorrhizae, and MAINTAIN, is a simple fortnightly maintenance regime of flicking micro-organisms and electrolytes.
WHAT IS SUPERCHARGE? Supercharge is a simple soil building practice that encompasses the most essential natural principles to build soil naturally right there in your own garden beds, and it is easy for gardeners to use.
WHAT DOES SUPERCHARGE INVOLVE? The four simple actions are; 1) Green Nutrient and your own greens laid down forms the basis of the soils latent nourishment, 2) composting worms and cocoons process this to partially release these nutrients, 3) flicked Compost Extract and Trace Elementals ensure the broader spectrum of nutrients is naturally released (and also act as biological control against disease), and 4) carbon mulch makes carbon chains available for long-term stability and slow release.

WHEN IS SUPERCHARGE DONE? Supercharge is also done immediately when you start Natural Gardening at any time of year. It is then repeated at half rate applications every May because May ties in with the time of year when all activity moves downwards into the soil so that nutrients can be restructured to become available to plants in the Spring.
