Scotts Osmocote 1kg Controlled Release Fertiliser for Vegetable / Tomato / Herb / Garden Beds
One of the best things about growing plants in pots is there’s always a way to get creative with the containers. For a fresh take on growing herbs and vegies, cast your eye around for interesting household items that can be repurposed. Pretty much anything that’s non-toxic and big enough to hold soil will do the job!
Let’s get creative! Cherry tomatoes look amazing cascading from an old galvanised bucket or watering can, while repurposed metal colanders make wonderful hanging baskets. If you’re using a timber container, don’t plant directly into it, but use it as a cachepot for plastic nursery pots.
Ensure good drainage by punching or drilling holes in the bottom of the containers and adding a layer of coarse gravel. The next step is the potting mix – the better the mix, the healthier your plants will be; fill containers with a specially formulated potting mix, one with the right balance of nutrients for flourishing edibles, like Scotts Osmocote Plus Organics tomato, vegetable and herb premium planting mix.
Feed and water regularly to keep plants healthy. Water daily when it’s hot or when the top inch of soil feels dry. When it comes to feeding, Scotts Osmocote Plus Organics tomato, vegetable and herb plant food and soil improver is the ultimate multitasker! With one application, Osmocote Plus Organics provides essential nutrition for your plants while aiding beneficial soil microorganisms.
