Slow release Firts- which do you use and how much

Recommended Posts

Talking to some people about the use of slow firts for pots recently I was wondering what people would recommend brand wise and quantity wise. I've always used liquid.

I use osmocote now, this one https://www.scottsaustralia.com.au/osmocote/osmocote-plus-trace-elements/osmocote-vegetable-tomato-herb-garden-beds/. Once you find a 25kg tub you'll be set for life! Brunnings wholesale is where I got mine.

I used to mess around trying to do my own custom mixes but got too hard with products disappearing off shelves etc and couldn't keep it consistent. So yeh just the veggie osmocote and a liquid b&b feed once monthly in summer.

only thing slow release I use is a small tip of the scoop [adjusted according to plant pot/garden size]; of fish, blood n bone meal

[as far as I'm aware]

I like the sounds of what you guys are using though.
