Some pond plants are heavy feeders especially lilies, other deep water plants and irises, and may need an extra boost to keep them in tip top condition. These Osmocote slow release fertiliser tablets are perfect for the job and allow you to give very accurate dosages in a very simple manner.
Being slow release means that the fertiliser is released as the plant needs it and minimises any excess nutrients leaching into the pond so will not encourage growth of algae. Thanks to its conical shape they can easily be pushed into the growing matter. These tablets are rated as 8-9 months and so are ideal for use when potting up in late Autumn or early Winter as they will last well into the following year’s growing season.
Recommended dosage is one tablet (5 grams) per 1 litre of basket size. Always good to use when re-potting plants especially lilies into larger baskets.
Available in 10 20 and 50 tablet packs -please select quantity from “Choose quantity” box below.
