A specially formulated potting and planting mix for vegetables, tomatoes and herbs in pots, in the garden and in raised beds and planter boxes. It includes Scotts Osmocote® that feeds for 4 months

When to use


  • Boosted levels of iron and calcium produce lush, deep green leaves and assist in the prevention of diseases like Blossom End Rot that can affect tomatoes, capsicums and zucchinis
  • Wetting agent assists moisture to soak into the mix and helps roots absorb nutrients
  • Growth stimulants encourage the proliferation of soil microorganisms and earthworms that improve soil quality and help plants absorb nutrients better
  • Certified to meet the Australian Standard for Premium potting mixes



  • All vegetables and herbs growing in pots, boxes, raised beds or the open garden
  • Safe to use for new plants - the controlled release of nutrients means it will not burn soft leaves or tender young roots



  • Don't use for phosphorus sensitive plants
  • Don't use in hydroponic growing systems or ponds
  • Don't use on lawns - use only specifically named lawn topdress soils on grassed areas


In pots, boxes and raised beds

  1. Use Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Mix straight from the bag - don't mix it with other materials. Close the bag tightly after use
  2. Water plants that are to be repotted, especially soft seedlings, and allow them to drain
  3. Choose a clean container with large drainage holes and partly fill it with fresh mix out of the bag
  4. For advanced seedlings - carefully knock the plant to be potted up from its existing pot and loosen the root ball. Trim off any dead or damaged roots. Young seedlings should be carefully removed from the punnet or cell pack and the roots should preferably not be disturbed
  5. Place the plant in the centre of the pot if growing individually, or arrange as preferred for multiple plantings, and fill with the mix to 2-3cm below the rim
  6. Tap the new pot or container gently on the bench to help the new mix settle in and around the roots - do not pack it down
  7. Water the pot thoroughly (until water runs from the drainage holes) then allow it to drain freely. If necessary, top the mix up again to the suggested level
  8. Place the pot or container in a sheltered spot for a few days to allow the plant to settle and acclimatise before moving back to its permanent home


In-ground planting

  1. Prepare the soil in the vegetable patch and form a shallow trench for sowing seeds or planting out a row of young plants
  2. Line the base of the planting trench with Vegetable, Tomato & Herb Mix
  3. Sow seeds along the depression as per packet instructions and cover over lightly with more mix
  4. For seedlings - carefully remove advanced plants or seedlings from packs, punnets or trays



  • Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Mix may be used at any time of the year when new crops are being sown or planted
