Osmocote Start offers a good fertilizer program for annual plants with a short growth cycle, such as violets, primulas, impatiens and marigolds. Osmocote Start is also ideal for more salt-sensitive vegetable crops and cuttings that have more difficulty with rooting.
In contrast with traditional fertilizers, Osmocote Start avoids the risks of an excessive salt level; your crop will always receive the right nutrients. The high potassium level of Osmocote Start ensures compact and even growth.
Osmocote Start can be mixed and topdressing is possible as long as you ensure that no granules remain on the leaves.
