Hello All,
I'm trying to track down a fertilizer for my elderly neighbour.

He tells my it is call "Fertalive" or something close and is probally produced in cork. I think it maybe a Worm Tea.

Would any one know of this and a supplier. We live in Co. Louth but would travel or pay for delivery.

Never heard of "Fertalive" JBlaney.
It's more than likely a fertiliser made from worm castings by the way you are describing it.
Something like this.......Worm Castings fertiliser
