HOW TO USE
Roses, Gardenias, Azaleas & Camellias will promote healthy growth and beautiful flowers on roses and other acid-loving plants
For usage rates see back of pack details OR broadcast over beds using 50-80g/m2.
- Established plants - sprinkle Scotts Osmocote® in a band around the dripline on the soil (beneath the outer perimeter of the leaf canopy) once a year and cover with mulch. This is where the feeding roots will be, not close into the trunk.
- Pots: sprinkle at recommended rate over potting mix and cover lightly with mulch.
- Self-watering pots - make 10cm deep holes in the potting mix with a pencil or long skewer a few centimetres in from the rim of the pot and fill with columns of Scotts Osmocote®. Water from the top once or twice to start the feeding process.
- The number of holes will depend on the size of the pot - as a guide, three equally spaced holes would be enough for a 20cm diameter pot.
Add to soils at planting time.
-Apply in early Spring, when soils are warming and plants are putting on new growth and repeat in early Autumn
