HOW TO USE

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


APPLICATION RATES

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
