About This Product

Promote vigorous top-growth and strong root development with Osmocote Smart-Release Plant Food Flower and Vegetable. This product is a must-have for vegetable gardeners. It is specially formulated to grow flavorful vegetables and colorful blooms, and it is ideal for perennials. Plus, it feeds for up to 4 full months, so you can enjoy beautiful flowers and more bountiful vegetables all season long.

Highlights

  • OSMOCOTE'S HIGHEST TOTAL NUTRIENT FORMULA: NPK = 14-14-14. Favored for seasonal vegetables and perennials. Promotes strong roots as well as vigorous and bountiful above-ground growth.
  • OSMOCOTE'S DIRECTIONS FOR USE: 1 lb. covers 40 sq. ft. (approx. 6½' x 6½'). Mix into 1 - 3" of soil. Applicator included. Apply to vegetable gardens and mulched areas around ornamental trees / shrubs, and raised beds.
  • OSMOCOTE QUALITY: Osmocote is the original slow-release plant food. Decades of rigorous field testing confirm product effectiveness with hundreds of plant species in a variety of climate and soil conditions.
  • OSMOCOTE'S SECRET: Soil temperature controls how Osmocote releases its nutrients, and importantly how nutrients are taken up by the plant. Replenishment and feeding are in natural harmony.
  • OSMOCOTE IS MISTAKE-PROOF: Even if over-applied up to 3x the recommended rate, Osmocote does not 'burn' the plant.
  • OSMOCOTE CONFIDENCE: Performance is guaranteed. If unsatisfied, return the empty package to The Scotts Company for a full refund.

Answer This Question

A:  Osmocote Smart-release Plant Food Flower & Vegetable is registered for use in all outdoor flower and vegetable gardens, and around trees and shrubs. Apply by sprinkling directly onto the soil, around outdoor garden bed plants. You may need to slightly move the mulch away from the base of the plant so that the Osmocote Smart-release Plant Food Flower & Vegetable can reach the soil.

          Just what my geranium needed. They were looking bad when I brought them in from the deck. Gave them some of this balanced fertilizer and they perked up. Will be feeding them through the winter.

          Osmocote is the best fertilizer for my potted plants. No need to put fertilizer in your watering can. Follow the directions on the package and your plants will look like award winning specimens through the season. Osmocote has tiny time release capsules which feed the plants for months.
