Cheers
Matt

I've started using it. The NPK is pretty good, ie, higher in Nitrogen than the liquid version. It also looks good on the top - well better than Osmocoat, small brown balls that blend into top dressing nicely. Also using the Fruit & Flower version for the same reason on the flowering tree's. This year my blossoming is brilliant but this could be due to using 0:10:10 for the first time in late Summer/Autumn..Time will tell but I reckon it's pretty good so far. The other one is B-Green from Multicrop. Been using this also.

Hi Robsterios,

Thank you for your thoughts - I have only just seen the availability of Slow Release Powerfeed - I use both the 0-10-10 in Summer/Autumn/Winter(maybe) and "Compact"(from Leong at Bonsai South) 5-4-10 for Pines but am keen to look at something other than Osmocote/Dynamic Lifter.

Have you been using Powerfeed/Seasol in liquid ford as well as the Slow Release?

Regards
