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.

An application of Pots, Planters & Indoors lasts for 6 months. It is best applied in spring and again in autumn.

N-P-K 15.3 - 2 - 12.6 + additional nutrients including a range of essential trace elements.

Benefits

  • Osmocote 6 month fertiliser for controlled release feeding.
  • Contains wetting agent with Hydraflo moisture control.

Directions for use

Using the rate recommended on the container, apply the Pots, Planters & Indoors as described below. It can also be added to potting mix at planting time.

For established pots

  1. Sprinkle evenly over the surface of the potting mix.
  2. Water well and top with a thin layer of mulch.

 For self-watering pots

  1. Make holes in the potting mix with a pencil or long skewer and fill with columns of Osmocote.
  2. Water initially from the top and the fertiliser will subsequently be diffused through the mix as the water is absorbed from the well of water below.

 For potting up

  1. Mix Osmocote with potting mix at the rate of 5g per 1 litre of potting mix.

 Important: Check first to see that the mix does not already contain fertiliser.

Precautions
DO NOT USE on potted phosphorus-sensitive plants including South African natives like proteas, leucadendrons, leucospermums and serrurias as well as Australian natives such as grevilleas, banksias and waratahs. Use Osmocote® Native Gardens instead.
