A simple, no-fuss fertiliser for all flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs except phosphorus-sensitive plants such as grevilleas and proteas. An application of Fruit, Citrus, Trees & Shrubs lasts for 6 months. Apply at the beginning of spring and again in autumn.

This controlled release fertiliser contains all the nutrients needed for healthy plant growth. The nutrients are released according to temperature - more when it's warm and plants are growing well, less when it's cold.

The addition of a professional grade wetting agent enhances water absorption into the soil and helps plants take up more nutrients.

N-P-K 18.7 - 2 - 6.5 + boosted magnesium + a range of essential trace elements.

Benefits

  • Contains iron and magnesium to keep leaves greener for longer.
  • Osmocote 6 month fertiliser for controlled release feeding.

 For self-watering pots
