The above mentioned rates are general recommendations. Adjust the rate to specific circumstances. The mentioned rates are based on potting substrates with max. 0,5 kg/m³ of base fertilizer. For most pottings in the mentioned period, no base fertilizer is needed.
Osmocote Exact Protect 12-14M can be mixed in the potting substrate or dibbled in the plant hole. Dibbling is only recommended for well-rooted liners (P9). Only make use of fertilizer applicators, which do not damage the coating. 

Osmocote Exact Protect is a 100 % dual coated fertilizer; the initial release of nutrients is postponed in the first 2-3 months. It is very important to apply Osmocote Exact Protect in the correct potting period. Depending on your circumstances it might be necessary to slightly re-fertilize in the summer period (June/July/August). Contact your ICL Specialty Fertilizers advisor for tailor-made advice.

Trial first on a small scale before rate, application or other changes in your cultural practices are implemented. As circumstances can differ and as the application of our products is beyond our control, ICL Specialty Fertilizers cannot be made responsible for any negative results.


Osmocote Exact Protect has been especially developed for autumn pottings of nursery stock in the period of mid October until mid January. Application of Osmocote Exact Protect is ideal for i.e. conifers and roses, bare rooted plant material / grafted material in autumn/winter pottings.
