Vegetables are hungry little things and they love a bit of moisture, so they’ll thrive if you give them a bit of extra pampering in pots. That means starting with a potting mix that’s tailor-made for edible plants, with a list a mile long of added goodies to give your crop the best chance of success. Mel shows us why.

  • Because nutrients are quickly leached from pots you want to look for a mix that contains added fertilizer. Osmocote Organic Herb and Veg is a controlled release fertilizer that feeds plants for up to 4 months, giving your potted vegie garden a good kick start.
  • Osmocote Organic Herb and Veg also contains Gypsum – a natural clay breaker. On top of this it includes composted manure, blood and bone, seaweed, fish and molasses that encourage microbi activity in the soil and earthworms. It’s also boosted with Calcium – which can help to prevent blossom end rot in crops like tomatoes and capsicum.
  • On top of all of that it also contains a professional grade wetting agent to ensure that water can penetrate the mix and get down to the precious roots.
