How Fruit, Citrus, Trees & Shrubs works

This controlled release fertiliser contains all the nutrients needed for healthy plant growth. The nutrients are released according to temperature - more when it's warm and plants are growing well, less when it's cold.

The addition of a professional grade wetting agent enhances water absorption into the soil and helps plants take up more nutrients.

How to use

Using the rate recommended on the container, sprinkle the Fruit, Citrus, Trees & Shrubs around the dripline and outwards. It can also be added to potting mix and to the soil at planting time.

How to apply Osmocote

Quick Tip

Lemons and other citrus have wide, shallow root systems. They need regular watering, feeding and mulching. Keep the root zone clear of other plants.
