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.

HOW TO USE

In pots, boxes and raised beds

Use Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Mix straight from the bag - don't mix it with other materials. Close the bag tightly after use
Water plants that are to be repotted, especially soft seedlings, and allow them to drain
Choose a clean container with large drainage holes and partly fill it with fresh mix out of the bag
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
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
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
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
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

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


WHEN TO USE

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

NOT SUITABLE FOR

Don't use for phosphorus sensitive plants
Don't use in hydroponic growing systems or ponds
