Hi jp,
Osmocote is a long term fertilizer. It releases over several months. The way I use Osmocote is to add it to the mix during repotting. I put some mix in the pot, sprinkle it with a little Osmocote and mix it in well with the mix. The tree is then placed on top of that mix and the pot is filled with more mix as required. After repotting I would use Seasol until there is signs of growth, then use liquid fertilizer. I use Charlie Carp and Powerfeed. I alternate between the two. One feed will be Charlie Carp and the next Powerfeed. Once I see good growth I then spread some Seamungus on the soil. Seamungus looks like Dynamic Lifter but I consider it to be a very balanced fertilizer.

Hello again.i did spread osmocote throughout the soil mixture and do use seasol fortnightly. I have had the tree for about 6 months now and only in the last 2 has it done this. I will be attending your classes shortly and I am hoping I can bring it in for further assessment.

Hi jp,
I'm sure you will really benifit from attending the School. There is lots of help available, and good advise on how to deal with your trees. Have you any idea at this stage what day or night you will attend?
