great time release product April 03, 2017
I grow tomatoes in containers and this product gives great time release fertilization. I don't have to worry about weekly applications which is great, especially during summer vacation!

Master Gardener, Plant sale chair, greenhouse worker March 31, 2017
When I retired to Door County Wisconsin I took a job with a nursery that grows beautiful plants. One of the reasons for their success is, they use Osmocote in all their hanging baskets, 2 gallon Geranium pots and mixed containers. That was my first introduction to the product. Since then I have recommended the product to customers and used it in the planting medium for our Master Gardener plant sale annuals we grow and have used it at home. I am so busy with growing and my own gardening, I soon found I loved the convenience of being able to sprinkle the beds quickly instead of the arduous task of mixing and toting buckets of solution. I prefer the balanced NPK of the flower and Vegetable and purchase a big bag of it in the fall so I have it ready to get on the raspberry's, peonies and Iris in the early Spring. Which is now Yea! Thanks Osmocote for making my life easier!

I have been using Osmocote for about 8 years. I started using it when I became a Master Gardener. It is the plant food we use for the majority of plants grown for our annual Plant Sale, that's 8 to 10 thousand plants. It is easy to use, effective, and affordable.

I love the convenience of Osmocote. As a member of a Garden Club, we are always looking for convenience to use in our own gardens. I have always used the Osmocote and have loved the results.

Great Product! July 08, 2016
My family has owned and operated a small retail greenhouse operation for 26 years and has used Osmocote from the beginning. It's a great slow-release fertilizer that helps plants grow and stay uniform and healthy. A great product for commercial and homeowner use alike!

It comes in an easy to use bottle for sprinkling around whomever might need it, which is just about everyone...yes...I speak of my plants as if they were people... :o) They are kind of like people, they bring joy to my life! So thank you Osmocote for helping me to provide healthy food for our table and beautiful flowers to look upon!

Fertilizing with Ease and Effectiveness March 21, 2015
Osmocote Smart-Release plant foods have become a staple with me for their ease in everything from storage to application; and for what counts the most: a safe and effective way to work with fertilizers during a growing season. Healthy soil and a garden that stays in balance to support beneficial insects and birds are as important to me as keeping a garden that is a pleasure for adults and children. Using Osmocote helps me feel that I'm using what I need and keeping it in place where it is needed.

Save the vinca! February 24, 2015
My son bought a vinca for his outdoor frog habitat last year and decided to bring it indoors to keep it safe this winter. It suffered for months despite being planted in new potting soil fortified with a fertilizer. I was out of the Osmocote fertilizer I use for my container plantings so I finally had my husband pick up another bottle. I should've done it a long time ago. Within a week the plant perked up and it appears it's going to be just fine. And when our son plants it outside again, I'll be sure he'll sprinkle a little more Osmocote around it to keep it happy the rest of the spring.

The Garden Goof February 04, 2015
I have been using Osmocote for many years and have never been happier. The convenience of using a fertilizer once, but sometimes twice during a wet summer, takes out the guess work. Once and done. Thank you for your excellent product. Lyzz De Giovanni
