ICL launch Osmocote product at Four Oaks

Osmocote PrePlant is a new pre-planting fertilizer aimed at helping growers and landscapers add value to their offering and help boost incremental sales to the landscaping sector.


"Giving plants in landscaping schemes the best possible start, Osmocote PrePlant is the latest addition to our tried and tested, marketing leading Osmocote controlled release fertilizer range," said ICL technical manager Andrew Wilson.  "The fully coated granules provide full season nutrition for plants in a single application, with minimal leaching."

Designed for use when planting trees, hedging plants, hardy nursery stock (HNS) and herbaceous perennials, Osmocote PrePlant provides an ideal NPK and trace element package (16-11-10+2MgO+TE) promoting good establishment and ongoing healthy plant growth. It is suitable for a wide range of trees and plants including Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Buxus, without fear of root scorching.

"Available in handy 1kg packs to avoid wastage, Osmocote PrePlant is a new concept to provide a cost effective solution for landscapers when planting out," said Wilson.  "While helping to save labour - by eliminating the need for topdressing during the season – it has been carefully formulated to give plants the best possible start."

Osmocote PrePlant will be featured on the ICL stand at the Four Oaks Trade Show next week.
