Baskets and tubs are generally planted up early in the spring using plugs. It is important not to overwater before they are established. Later on plants have a high nutritional and water need – particularly when grown in baskets.
Initially a low nutrient growing media is required to encourage fast establishment and rooting of the plugs. It is important not to overwater until plants are established. When nutrition and water demands rise, particularly in baskets, there is a high chance of leaching WSF.
With its unique dual coating, the release of Osmocote Exact High K matches plants’ demand. After establishment, there is enhanced Potassium release optimizing compact growth and flowering.
The release patterns of Osmocote Exact High K matches crop needs and gives further release during retail and the whole consumer phase, maintaining flowering through the season.
