Can Osmocote be used with edible plants such as vegetables, fruits and citrus?

Yes. In fact, Osmocote Flower & Vegetable Plant Food is formulated for just these purposes. Each granule contains essential plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Nutrition is released into the soil slowly so that plants have a ready supply as they grow. Osmocote granules are coated with a resin made from vegetable oil, which make them safe to handle with bare skin. Of course, it is always wise to wash hands following exposure to any garden product and it is also best to avoid ingesting granules directly or touching eyes after granules are handled.
