ican Real Blood and Bone
It's real! iCAN Real Blood & Bone is the best you can buy! It contains almost DOUBLE the nitrogen of others on the market - because nothing has been taken out and no fillers have been added. It is as it says REAL Blood & Bone. Start your veges and plants off with a real boost and you will be rewarded with instant growth. It's the good stuff - like grandad used to use!
At last after 35 years, we have found a supply of REAL Blood and Bone. What is the difference you might ask? Blood and Bone is made from abattoir waste consisting of bone hoof, horn, waste meat and blood.
Since about 1980, the blood has been processed separately and used for other high value purposes, leaving very little blood in the fertiliser for the last 35 years. Blood is the ingredient that contributes most of the nutrients of nitrogen.
The nitrogen content of our ican REAL Blood and Bone is almost double that of other brands and the phosphate content the same. (Check the analysis content on the labels of each).
Use ican REAL Blood and Bone on your garden and see the difference.

ican Slow Food
ican Slow Food will provide your new or established plants with 24 months of balanced feeding as and when they need it. The controlled release fertiliser acts with temperature to provide more fertiliser when the plant growth is active and less when it's not.
It is perfect to use as a base fertiliser with all new plants - just mix a little in the bottom of the planting hole and sprinkle through the sides as you backfill to safely feed for the next 2 years.
It is also our no.1 recommendation for houseplants as they prefer to be fed little and often - which is exactly what ican Slow Food is designed to do.

ican Vegetable Seeds
Modern varieties of vegetables are higher yielding, better tasting, more disease resistant and more uniform than older varieties.
Our garden experts have carried out extensive trials and sought advice from vegetable seed specialists in NZ and internationally, to find the very best varieties for the NZ home gardener. We have chosen 15 of the very best vegetables for you under the ‘ican’ brand.
The majority of these varieties are hybrids where there has been a focus on breeding for
- Superior Taste
- Improved Pest and Disease resistance
- Increased Vigour and Yield
In addition hybrids have the benefit of being consistent and reliable. A number of the varieties are also more compact, and faster maturing, which results in a larger range from less space, and the ability to produce more crops through the season. Many are ideal for raised planter beds and container gardening.
