  • Up to 6 months controlled release feeding
  • The high potassium and low steady nitrogen formula stimulates flowering and maximises blooms
  • Added wetting agent enhances water absorption into the soil or potting mix and helps plants take up nutrients
  • Less than 2% phosphorus (the 'P' in NPK) means it can be safely used on most Australian natives

A no-fuss, set and forget controlled release plant food for plants growing in pots, tubs, barrels, hanging baskets and window boxes. The smart way to fertilise - one application feeds continuously for up to six months.


Pots, Planters & Indoors is for all plants growing in containers and planter boxes to promote healthy growth, beautiful flowers and generous fruiting
Use the rates in the table below as a guide for how much to apply


Pot Diameter / Amount of Osmocote

15cm- 1TBL

20cm- 2TBL

25cm- 3TBL

30cm- 5TBL

Note: TBL - tablespoon = 15g

Established pots - sprinkle at recommended rate over potting mix, lightly mix in and water thoroughly to initiate nutrient release
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® (share the rate suggested above equally between the holes). 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

For a complete guide on how to use Scotts Osmocote® Plus Trace Elements Pots, Planters & Indoors, watch the video on this page and always check the packaging


Add to potting mix when transplanting or repotting, if the mix does not already contain a controlled release fertiliser
Apply in early Spring, when soils are warming and plants are putting on new growth and repeat in early Autumn
