Dynamite Plant Food is best known for its professional-grade continuous-release fertilisers and organic plant foods.

The firmwas initially developed for and used by commercial growers. The patented plant food was formulated to provide continuous release nutrients, based on both moisture and temperature needs.

In 1990, Dynamite Complete Plant Food was introduced to the retail market.

Since then, the product line has expanded to include a full line of plant foods developed for flowers and vegetables; orchids and bromeliads; palms and citrus; and all purpose needs.

In addition, Dynamite developed the organic formula, Mater Magic, which is designed to produce larger and juicier tomatoes as well as an all-purpose organic plant food which can be used on herbs, fruits, vegetables, houseplants, trees and shrubs.

Founded in 1956, Sun Bulb produces range tropical plants and garden products designed for the home gardener under the Better-Gro brand.

Better-Gro currently distributes products nationwide through major home centres, mass merchandisers and independent garden centers.
