Original Osmocote’s nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (NPK) ratio is 19-6-12. Osmocote Plus’ formula is 15-9-12. Each fertilizer granule has a resin coating that controls the timing of nutrient release. Nutrients release more quickly in warm soils than cold soils.
Outdoors, sprinkle 3 tablespoons of original Osmocote, for every 4 square feet of area — 1 pound covers a 40 square-foot area — and work it into the top few inches of soil. Water it in. It also can fertilize plants in pots. Apply Osmocote Plus, which comes in a 4.5-pound container, the same way. The container covers a 170-square-foot area.
Feed plants with original Osmocote every four months. The product releases its nutrients over a four-month period. Osmocote Plus feeds plants for six months.
