Scotts Osmocote® Plus Trace Elements Organic Garden Soil

Do your garden and the environment a favour by using Organic Garden Soil to restore and maintain tired, poor quality soils.  Fertilisers on their own won't restore the balance; organic matter is also needed - this premium quality organic soil is one of the easiest ways to add it.

  • Luscious living soil that does not include any animal by-products
  • Made from premium composted organic material
  • Encourages good soil micro-organisms and earthworms
  • Includes Scotts Osmocote® controlled release fertiliser that will feed continuously for four months
  • Wetting agent helps water and nutrients soak in evenly


Improves soil texture and provides plants with the calcium they need to strengthen their structure

Gypsum also boosts disease resistance

Wetting agent

The added wetting agent enhances water absorption into the soil or potting mix and helps plants take up nutrients

Sustainable and environment friendly

Made from composted organic materials from renewable sources. Contains no animal by-products (manures or blood & bone) so has no odour, just a fresh earthy smell

Topdress or dig in

Ideal for topdressing raised garden beds that have 'slumped' or working into top soil to rejuvenate it before planting


25L bag

Suitable for

Vegetable gardens including raised beds, tubs and planter boxes to improve soil texture and encourage beneficial soil microbes

Garden beds to reinvigorate tired and depleted soils

All plants including phosphorus-sensitive natives

Safe to use for new plants - the well composted organics and controlled release of nutrients from the Scotts Osmocote® mean it will not burn soft leaves or tender young roots

Not suitable for

Don't use in hydroponic growing systems, ponds or pots submerged in water

Do not use on lawns - use only specifically named lawn topdress soils on grassed areas

How it works

Organic Garden Soil is one of the easiest ways to restore and maintain soil and plant health

  • It helps improve the chemistry and physical structure of your garden soil - keys to healthy plants
  • Organic compost helps lighten heavy clay soils to improve water and nutrient penetration
  • It also adds bulk to light sandy soils, holding moisture so the soil remains damp for longer after watering or rain

How to use

  1. Add to soils before planting annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, shrubs, trees and climbers
    Mix some through the existing soil before topping up with the remaining new soil - this promotes good drainage and root growth.
  2. Topdress existing garden beds with a 5-10cm layer once or twice a year to replenish organic matter which has broken down and nutrients used by plants

When to use

Organic Garden Soil can be added to gardens at any time of the year, either incorporated into planting soil or as a topdress.

Safety Information

  • Safety first:
    Read the instructions on the product packaging before use and take particular note of any warnings or cautions on the label

    When using soils and potting mixes, we recommend the use of garden gloves to protect your hands

    See the Safety Data Sheet for this product

Technical details

  • Suitable for use on and around native plants and other phosphorus-sensitive plants - the included Scotts Osmocote® has less than 2% phosphorus
  • Contains gypsum, which turns clay into workable soil without altering the pH (acidity or alkalnity reading)

Tips, tricks & advice

Healthy Soil = Healthy Plants

When it comes to gardening, the plants you grow will only be as good as the soils in which they are growing.  Poor soil quality results in under-nourished struggling plants.
