FEATURES

  • 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

SUITABLE FOR

  • 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

 

NOT SUITABLE FOR

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

HOW TO USE

  1. Use Osmocote® Professional Vegetable, Tomato & Herb Mix straight from the bag. For best results, do not mix with any other material. Close the bag tightly after use.
  2. Select a clean container with large drainage holes and partly fill the pot with Osmocote® Professional Vegetable, Tomato & Herb Mix.
  3. Turn the plant out of its existing container. Loosen the root ball and gently remove any damaged or dried out roots.
  4. Place the plant in the centre of the pot. Fill in with Osmocote® Professional Vegetable, Tomato & Herb Mix to within 2–3cm from the top of the pot and press lightly.
  5. Tap the new container gently to allow the mixture to settle. Do not pack down.
  6. Initial watering of the plant after potting is essential. Allow the excess water to drain away and place in the shade for 2–3 days to allow the plant to establish.
