A very wide range of garden plants are grown, to match the nutrient needs more closely it is best to group the plants into groups with similar needs . Wide range of pot sizes from 1 Lit up to 10 Litre.
Longer term crops which are often grown outdoors will quickly lose leaf color and show nutrient deficiencies. Many crops are overwintered and need the fertilizer to perform in the second season.
The Osmocote Exact standard range not only contains NPK but also Magnesium and essential trace elements for optimum healthy growth, the release is very efficient and optimized to the plant demand.
Depending on timing of sale we would recommend either 8-9m or 12-14m longevity.
Use 12-14 Months for plants which are being overwintered and which will be sold in the following year from planting. Osmocote Exact, the 3rd generation of controlled release fertilizers, combines safety, consistency and patterned release. Different plants have different nutritional requirements and therefore need coated fertilizers that do not only guarantee longevity but also release pattern.
For plants with a shorter growth to sale cycle Osmocote Exact standard 8-9 Months provides the perfect nutrition for your crops. Osmocote Exact closely follows plant growth, making the product not only very efficient but also very safe to use.
