Osmocote Total All Purpose is a no-fuss general purpose controlled release plant food. Use it throughout the garden to promote healthy growth, beautiful flowers and generous fruiting. It contains a wetting agent to improve moisture penetration into soils and potting mixes.

An application of Total All Purpose lasts for 12 months. It is best applied at the beginning of spring and can be applied again in autumn.  This controlled release fertiliser contains all the nutrients needed for healthy plant growth. The nutrients are released according to temperature - more when it's warm and plants are growing well, less when it's cold.

The addition of a professional grade wetting agent enhances water absorption into the soil and helps plants take up more nutrients.

N-P-K 20.9 - 0.5 - 3.8 + boosted trace elements.


  • Contains iron and magnesium to keep leaves greener for longer.
  • Osmocote 12 month fertiliser for controlled release feeding.
  • Contains wetting agent with Hydraflow moisture control.

Directions For Use: 

Using the rate recommended on the container, apply the Total All Purpose as described below. You can add Total All Purpose to potting mix and to soil at planting time.

For established plants

  1. Apply Osmocote at the dripline (below the outer edge of the foliage) and outwards.
  2. Water well and cover with mulch.

For established pots

  1. Sprinkle evenly over the surface of the potting mix.
  2. Water well and top with a thin layer of mulch.

 For self-watering pots

  1. Make holes in the potting mix with a pencil or long skewer and fill with columns of Osmocote.
  2. Water initially from the top and the fertiliser will subsequently be diffused through the mix as the water is absorbed from the well of water below.

 For advanced trees

  1. Use a narrow garden stake to make small deep holes spaced around the circumference of the tree.
  2. Fill the holes with columns of Osmocote and water the area well.

 For potting up

  1. Mix Osmocote with potting mix at the rate of 5g per 1 litre of potting mix.

 Important: Check first to see that the mix does not already contain fertiliser.

For broadcasting

  1. Broadcast Osmocote at the rate of 50-80g per sq m. The exact rate will depend on the existing nutrient level of the soil.

 For water plants

  1. Incorporate Osmocote into the potting medium and top the pot with gravel or pebbles.
