High analysis controlled release fertiliser (Osmocote Pro 12 - 14 month) containing a complete range of essential nutrients. Suitable for most plants in pots including shrubs, flowers, ornamentals and trees.
The Osmocote® Pro - Controlled Release Fertiliser Range, consists of a selection of professional grade fertilisers that contain industry leading concentrations of macronutrients (NPK), magnesium and a full suite of micronutrients (trace elements, TE's), all coated in a biodegradable resin with a pre-defined nutrient release profile.
For fast growing plants, particularly in Spring, the 3-4m Osmocote® Pro option is generally advised, whereas during the rest of the year a slower release profile such as the 5-6m or the 8-9m Osmocote® Pro option might be more suitable. For particularly slow growing plants, such as most succulents, orchids, bonsai and particular exotics, the super long lasting 12-14m Osmocote® Pro is likely the best option. Please keep in mind, on a kilo-for-kilo basis, each of the Osmocote® Pro fertilisers contain a very similar nutritional composition, it is the nutrient release profile (duration) that varies.
Unfortunately, many of the cheaper supermarket or even hardware store versions of slow-release fertilisers contain a generally less desirable NPK & TE ratio, in order to reduce product costs and focus on more immediate quick greening (mainly nitrogen) as opposed to sustained and longer term plant performance. The Osmocote® Pro - Controlled Release Fertiliser Range provides is a very high analysis fertiliser containing all the essential nutrients required for healthy plant growth and is suitable for most plant types including most lawns, flowers & ornamentals, trees including fruit trees, vegetable gardens as well as bonsai (at lower application rates). Osmocote® Pro is suitable for use in pots, planter bags, raised garden beds and wide range of landscape applications.
The individual fertiliser granules are fully coated with a new generation matrix which provides constant and extended nutrient release (for 12 - 14 months) therefore helping growers avoid surges and leaching of important plant nutrients which belong in your pots or garden soil, not in our precious waterways.
Osmocote® Pro is a professional grade product used widely by the nursery industry in Australia, particularly in the cultivation of perennial plants in pots and planter bags.
Osmocote Pro 12-14 Month Controlled Slow Release Fertiliser Review
Excellent product at a reasonable price. I have used these fertilizers from Climbing Fig and I am very happy with the outcome. The garden looks always green after using the fertilizer. I strongly recommend these fertilizers to prospective customers who want low maintenance thriving gardens. Will order more in future.

Having a plant fertiliser that works for 12 plus months is fantastic
For an avid gardener that has limited time constraints due to work hours it’s reassuring that Osmocote pro is there working in the background

Quality slow release in a useful size
This is my standard for growing show quality gesneriads. I appreciate being able to purchase in smaller sizes to ensure freshness
