HOW TO USE
Use Fruit, Citrus, Trees & Shrubs throughout the garden to promote healthy growth, beautiful flowers and generous fruiting
Use the rates in the table below as a guide for how much to apply OR broadcast over beds using 50-80g/m2.
For Application rates- refer to back of pack
- Lemons and other citrus have wide, shallow root systems so they need regular watering, feeding and mulching - keep the root zone clear of other plants & weeds
- 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.
