  • Ideal for most plants
  • Can be used in combination with controlled release fertiliser to give plants an added boost

Measuring scoop

Wetting agent

The included wetting agent has a dual function. It helps the leaves of plants absorb fertiliser (foliar feeding) as well as allowing the fertiliser to soak readily into the soil where it can be taken up by roots.

Rapid response

Nutrients are readily available to plants and are rapidly taken up to boost growth, flowering and fruiting



Suitable for

Flowering seasonal plants including annuals, perennials and bulbs

Roses, camellias, rhododendrons, daphnes, gardenias and other flowering shrubs

Safe to use on new plants - will not burn when used at the recommended rates

Not suitable for

Australian natives and other phosphorus-sensitive plants like proteas, leucadendrons, etc

How it works

  • MaxFeed is a completely water soluble fertiliser that is readily absorbed through leaves (foliar feeding) as well as roots.
  • Its nutrients are immediately available to plants and it provides a readily available supply of all the essential and trace elements needed for healthy, vigorous growth
