Osmocote Fertilizer

4 posts in this topic

Wondering if any of you folks have used this plant food. I am growing some apple trees in my yard and it was recommended by the tree nursery people. I was just wondering what is in it. Some of the other types of plant food, like the 10-10-10, you have an idea of the chemical makeup. Just wondering if anyone knows whats in this stuff?

If you use the flower and vegetable formulation like I have setting in front of me it's a 14-14-14, sourced from polymer coated ammonium nitrate, ammonium phosphate, calcium phosphate and potassium sulfate. It's essentially a slow release product. Wife has used it for decades in greenhouse and nursery business. We use it in the large petunia planters at work. Works well.

You're welcome leechman. Rummaging around in the garage this a.m. I found another container of Osmocote, Indoor and Outdoor I think it was called. This one had a pink cap on it where the other one had a green cap on it. The analysis on this one was different, a 19-6-12. The ingredients were the same as the other formula, just in a different ratio.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
