Nice balanced fertilizer January 04, 2015
Great product for easy feeding! Nice balanced formula and slow release granules keeps plants happy for six months, which is pretty much the whole growing season. Couldn't be easier!

Feeding Roses with Osmocote December 30, 2014
In my younger days, I used to pull back the mulch three or four times during the summer, apply granulated fertilizer, scratch it in, re-apply the mulch, and then water it in. That gets to be really hot business in July and August! Osmocote is easier to apply and feeds for four months, which is perfect for our gardens in the northeast. I now apply it in May, and every time I water or it rains, I know my hungry roses will be happy! I still add a bunch of organics every year, and my roses have never been happier...and my back feels better!! Thanks for a great product!

Osmocote slow release fertilizer takes away the worry of over fertilizing & burning plants. I have been using Osmocote for a very long time and will not change over to anything else. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Thanks for such a fantastic product!

This product makes growing your own food easy. We have our own well for water and Osmocote releases the fertilizer slowly so I don't have to worry about contaminating our ground water with too much nitrogen. A really safe way to grow food crops.
