Calling all nurseries or commercial growers of all kinds . . .

Isn't it time you considered swapping from harmful chemical insecticides to a trusted
and effective natural alternative? Naturally the answer.

What makes Naturally Neem different to other neem products is that it does not
contain raw neem oil but rather the active ingredient 'Azadirachtin indica' 10,000ppm,
as a highly concentrated soluble emulsion.

It is a
registered commercial insecticide which has no withholding period and is
safe to use on all food crops. Users can safely harvest crops in just four hours.

ally Neem is a broad spectrum insecticide that targets all insects.

Available in 200ml bottles, which are perfect for the home gardener, and in commercial
antities of 1 litre, 4 litre and 10 litre containers. 100ml makes up to 100 litres of spray.

There will be special deals on Naturally Neem for orders placed on Trade Day.

Supreme Plastics Ltd  Stand 11
31 princes St, Onehunga, Auckland
Ph 09 636 0949

If you’re looking at re-cladding or upgrading your greenhouses or glasshouses, or even just
needing to replace some panels, then a visit to the Supreme Plastics
stand at Trade Day is a must.

Supreme are the people who supply specialised thermal sheeting for use on home and
commercial hothouses, tunnel houses, even growing boxes, and they will be offering
special pricing for their products on their first appearance at Trade Day – an ideal
opportunity for do-it-yourselfers as well as professional constructors to get great deals.

Call in to update yourself on what is available should you need it in future.


While based in Auckland, Supreme operates throughout New Zealand, much of their
product going through two major greenhouse builders, one in the North and one in the
South Island, although they say ‘no job is too big or too small.’

They specialise in a variety of polycarbonate and fibreglass products including corrugated
and Greca profile polycarbonate sheeting in lengths up to 7.2m. These represent good value
for money and come in clear to maximise the amount of light and heat to diffused or opal
for plenty of light but a reduction of heat.

Where long lengths of up to 31m are required, then The Greenhouse Topglass GC
fibreglass is a strong and durable option.

For growers wanting to extend their growing season the Twinwall clear 6mm or 8mm
sheeting is the answer. The thin rectangular wall tunnel structure makes this an excellent
sheet for vertical and curved jobs and the multi-wall construction
traps air between the layers, which ensures outstanding thermal insulation.
